  • Just Installed a Scottoiler - No More Chain Maintanence!

    Hey just installed a scottoiler to my vtr 1000. Highly recommend them to all of you.
    it runs from the vacuum of the inlet manifold and comes with a host of different connections to suit majority of bikes.

    check out scottoiler.com

    So what does it use for chain lube, do you have to buy a special can that fits into the system or do you refill it every few weeks?

      it has its own special oil. get the hot climate one for Australia. The Kit Comes with all the bits and pieces to refill. all you have to do is keep the resivour topped up approx every 1000kms

        looks like an awesome idea, I'm a bit forgetful with oiling my chain sometimes so something like this would be good

          I've ran a Scott oiler for a few years now and use old 80W90 diff oil in mine with no problems. I mounted mine on the frame where its visible so I can keep an eye on the fluid level and top it up easily. (Bit worried if it was under the seat I would forget about it and run it dry). It's one of the best purchases I've made.

              I'm just worried about them being that close to the rear tyre, never had problems getting oil on the tyre?

                you do need to be careful, you set the flow rate to a drip a minute. never had a problem

                  No prob with oiling up the tyre, as its only a few drops a minute although I found crossing the nullabour I had to reduce its flow as the sidewall was copping a bit of oil spray

                    i've been trialing the tutoro chain oiler as it costs under $40 and i didn't know if i would like the scottoiler, it's got an 8mL reservoir and manual tap you have to remember to turn on and off but a top up with engine oil and one full turn on the tap it will keep the chain damp for a 500km ride, turn it on a bit more eg 1.5turns for extra flow in wet weather or dusty conditions to keep the chain clean and it's still good for 200+kms.

                    I prefer it to spray lube as you can see it staying damp and clean rather than building up a gooey grinding paste on the chain.

                    If you carry some oil for top ups, i use a sewing machine oil bottle, it makes it easy to lube your chain for a 1000km ride day without all the hassles of trying to roll the bike forward in stages or use the sidestand while spinning the wheel by hand while spraying etc.

                        i run the tutoro on my drz for dusty trails and it works well keeping the chain soaked so i can just rinse it off with the garden hose after a day on the trails.

                        There is an alloy canister type from a different company for dirtbikes with an alloy tube to feed the chain but it's designed to dump oil on the chain while you push the bike or spin the wheel by hand, but if you used it a few times a ride say every 50km or when you went through water it would have the same effect as drip feed it's a lot tougher than the road versions.

                          never used one but know a few blokes with the Scott's on their bikes and they all swear by them. They do some serious miles, ironbutt kind of stuff, and they don't seem to have had any problems at all.

                            I fitted a SO about 3 years ago when I fitted my new chain and sprockets and have done ~30 000km's and only adjusted the chain twice very slightly, works great
                            About the only thing I may do is get the extra "Lube Tube" to hold extra oil to save filling it so often You do get a little fling accumulating on the rim but nothing worth noting on the tyre

                              for those with the tutoro oiler. how strong is the construction. does the acrylic oil canister actually hold up to dirt bike/atv riding. looking at maybe putting one on my quad.
