The same on the rain.
Bike HP might play a roll in that longer life too??? 55 HP, vs 100 HP. 1/2 the HP = 2x the miles. I would agree with that.
Those oilers sound great for road riders, but also sound like a constant mess.
I'd hate to see what the swing arm, sprocket area would look like in my off road use.
