Does it actually get on the chain from that distance?
It actually does and pretty well. Distance is misleading - the suspension is completely unloaded, that can be seen by the chain laying on the top "fin" of the aligner. When I put my 100kg onto the bike, it gets closer to chain, and I assured, that when the suspension is completely compressed, the nozzle wouldn't touch the chain.
So, you can get it somewhat closer, but not a great deal, and air flow in the chamber actually sucks dripping oil onto the chain. The most important, I found, is actual nozzle orientation.
I also did a "clean" test today: washed the bike squeaky clean (and wiped the chain off any remainder of whatever was on it), then rode ~10km with two turns of Tutoro drip bolt (normally, when there's no rain, I ride with .75 turns). Chain got a LOT of oil very fast, nothing else did.
I really like the way you routed the oil tube just behind the front sprocket. It's a clean setup.
I might change the routing of the oil tube on my Cameleon chain oiler and bring it to the front (similar to what you did).
You are very welcome
We have a nice cool raise near the pivot on the swingarm (presumably for a bearing?), which keeps the oil hose out of the harm's way (almost impossible to take picture of, though). I suggest to use it when you would re-route). Good luck!
That reminds me i need to buy some chain lube....
...and some rags...and some new swear words...
