There is a little firm in UK selling an alternative to Scotoiler.

With the Scotoiler you have to adjust to suit viscosity changes with temperature...else you can get a very slippy rear tyre.

The Uk alternative is a tube with a manual valve and you can open it and close it and adjust it as and when you desire...I prefer this.

The UK one costs 20.00 and can be fitted in 20 minutes ( took me 10 on my Laverda )

I have used it and it works. I hate oiling chains when I get home from a ride out.


google tutoro chain

Thanks Joe I'll check it out
I have the ScottOiler fitted on my two other bikes and I agree - it takes about 6 rides to get the oil flow right (or less than Victoria Falls)

Thumbs down chain oilers?

everything old, rediscovered

those that don't study the past are doomed to repeat it

my 1st English bike, a Triumph T 100R had a Factory built in chain oiler

there was a needle valve controlled oil line off the return line from the engine, it was inside the oil tank

no viscosity worries it was hot oil
no extra BS
set it and forget it

my Norton had the same thing

and then the New engineers arrived

then they started selling chain lube

on my Honda singles, i routed the crankcase breather to the bottom inside run of the chain. go play in the dirt and come back with a clean, oiled chain

But if you have an o-ring chain the Scott oiler is just a mess maker......o-ring chains only need lube to keep the o-rings happy and the chain clean. The oil you pour on the chain never penetrates the links....the o-rings seal them up.

This is not the 60's...chain technology has left the oilers in the past......unless you run a non o-ring chain for horsepower gains (less friction), in which case you are racing and will be taking good care of the chain anyway...

Am I right Noel?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I had a scott oiler fitted to my F41000s, see attached photo, I now have one on my S1000rr BMW, I went for the new electronic one, which allows you to control the drops of oil to the second, mine is currently set on 1 drop of oil every 120 seconds.

I saw a chain driven Harley last year. It was unusual in that the rear sprocket doubled as the rear brake disc.

He used and O ring chain and never oiled it ( for obvious reasons )

He did say the chains don't last very long...about 4000 miles

My mate has a Scotoiler on his Fazer...original chain on 24000 miles..

I don't understand why simple things are sometimes made needlessly complicated. My routine for chains is simple, I apply it on both o-ring and non o-ring chains, and my chains in all sorts of use (street bikes, track bikes, dirt bikes) last a long time, stay clean, and don't flick lube all over the place. Wipe down periodically with a rag damp with WD-40, wipe dry, apply a very light amount of chain lube to the inside run of the chain, adjust tension if necessary, go riding.

+1.....This is exactly my routine. My chains last a long time. Gina is on her original chain at over 18K miles and I have only adjusted it once.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
