PLEASE THIS IS A VERY RISK THING TO DO WITH ENGINE RUNNING.
do it whit your engine off and turn your rear wheel by hand if you have a paddock stand or a wheel roller
turn the wheel in same direction of motorcycle normal run. (counterclockwise in side of gear shift, side of the chain)
the best spot is like in picture 1


Why because you want to lube the chain in side of contact with sprockets not outside.
picture 2 and 3 show red X not a good spots because you will lube the outside of the chain only.







Remember to clean the wheel and tire because you don't want tho have oil or lube in tire.
i use petrol like in this picture but only clean is the wheel not the tire.

DO NOT USE PETROL IN TIRES.
i have a video of this job but since i do it with engine running and that is a very but very big risk i perfer use only pictures and text.

This is what i do. But i can't say this process is safe, i only can say the opposite. make like this way the person take the risk of losing fingers.
the best is make like this but with the engine off and turn wheel by hand.

I normally do.
But occasionally, I will de-grease, and then lube both.

And BEFORE you start discussing chain lube, can I suggest perhaps starting a new thread?
It probably does warrant a seperate thread...
