For an Auto Oiler to be cost effective first remove the X rings so the

enclose the drive train to isolate the oil fling from coating your prize in oil...

if I could easily convert the NC to belt drive I would. I imagine it took you a fair amount of work to do it on your Interceptor.

Amen... Chains are a pain... Belts spell relief...

When I quizzed Honda's engineers at Daytona about a belt drive
conversion they said "Larry its impossible to belt drive their bike,
you'd have to start with the belt and engineer the whole bike around
it"... really??? well 8 months of engineering and machining parts my
86 VF500F Interceptor became the famous 500 Belt-0-Ceptor and I racked
up 98,000 trouble free miles... you should have seen the look on those
engineer's face when they inspected THEIR bike... they asked "what's
next?" build my own frame I shot back... "OK" they said "you probably
could do that".





Riding the littlest bike among bigger "Motors of Death" can be a recipe for bruised egos...

Alright already. We get it. You don't see the point in oiling a chain
