Scottoiler on TVL

Yesterday I've got my Quick Shifter and Clutch Switch replaced and my Dealer will order the rear Indicator now. So they will get replaced soon. And I got something special for my TVL fitted. An Chain Lube System from CLS

( https://cls-evo.de/productinfo/cls-evo-tour/?lang=en )

Great so I don't have to clean and grease the chain anymore!! With a little control panel can I choose how many oil goes to the chain. The chain looks clean and no grease anymore on the wheel
The little oil tank under the seat has enough oil in for 10-12000 km. the chain will last longer (up to 80000 km )
I will put some Pic's later on...

Agreed.

The way the ones I've used before (ScottOiler and Lubtronic) work is the oil is fairly light weight so as well as lubricating and keeping the O rings moist it does get flung off, theoretically taking grit with it. The chain on my previous bike always had a thin film of oil and looked clean. Well between the outer plates it did; O rings and rollers basically. The outer surfaces of the side-plates got a clean with a paraffin soaked cloth or toothbrush and then a coating of oil a couple of times a year. Aside from checking/filling the reservoir every couple of months that was it. Sold at 32,000 miles on the original chain.

I know that they are in the business of selling the things but have a read of this page off the ScottOiler website, makes sense to me and proven, to me at least, by successful use of their product.

Currently using Wurth Dry Lube on the Turismo, paraffin clean every time and re-apply, frequency varies with the weather and amount of riding I manage to do but will be covering 2000 miles the week after next whilst on tour and will probably be re-lubing every other day. With an oiler it would just be a case of check and fill before departure. Not having to carry a can of lube in my luggage and grovel around on my knees would be great. Not saying I'm not inspecting the bike/tyres regularly BTW.

Was sceptical myself before having one but now sorely miss the convenience TBH.

I accept that for riders of sports bikes adding things like this goes against the grain, if I had one I wouldn't bother fitting an oiler. On a sports tourer though, IMHO, it makes more sense.

Hi Guys...

@Bumpkin:
I've ordered the Parts beginning of March.. !!


I am back from a trip (250km) to see how the chain oiler works.. and I'm impressed how good it works. The chain and everything around was just clean. It is perfectly.

Here are some pics:

the control unit has to move from the handlebar inside the hand shield ...

It will get done, when I get my Indicator done...

The technician has mounted accidentally at the wrong place....

Yes you're right!! But with the oiler the grid and dirt can not stick at the chain, like it does with the chain grease!

I'm really impressed how well this works!

look at the pics before... after 250Km ....

Hey folks. Have any of you installed a chain oiler on your TV, and if so where have you mounted it? Thanks

Please tell my why you'd need something like that in this modern age ?

The practicality of such a device might not be as appreciated by a sports bike rider, adding weight vs. a quick spray of lube before every ride. Enhanced chain longevity and reduced maintenance, especially for the all year, all weather daily rider, are the advantages.

Used to use one on previous bikes but must admit that, now I ride just for pleasure, my TVL hasn't benefited from one.

Gero HH of this parish has quite a sophisticated German made chain oiler on his. See his comments and link to the manufacturers website.

Oh I know what they are Chas and tried one on my FJ1200 many moons ago, there was life before MV's too, and still don't get the need for it. But I imagine if you ride a lot in rain or salted roads that might be a game changer.

I ride all year round and live in Scotland!! My chain maintenance is more and therefore the oiler saves me some valuable riding time.

Chains (X-Ring for that matter) and with it sprockets are getting worn out by dirt.
By dirt sticking to the chain and getting in between the rollers and sprocket.
As more sticky stuff You have on Your chain as more dirt will be collected.
And so more dirt is grinding between chain and sprockets.
No Oil in the world will enhance the lubrication encapsulated between the rollers and the pins of Your chain.
A Scott Oiler is turning Your attention away from taking care of Your chain.
But what Your chain needs is being clean.
If You ride in harsh environments You need to clean Your chain and apply some rust protection.
For an example Dry Lube.
