    Right after using a can and a half of Muck Off chain lube in 5,500 miles I am considering fitting a Scottoiler  as I am getting pissed of with lubing the chain ( I have been spoilt as for the last 27 years my go too touring bikes in the garage have been shaft driven)
    I don't want the aggro of lubricating  the chain put me off taking the CR out instead of my 20 year olde GS

    Has any one any experience of fitting and using one on a CR

    TIA

    These are good bits of kit, had a number on various different bikes. They are easy to fit and use. Had both the electronic and vacuum versions both are good. For me I would go for a vacuum one as the difference in performance is not worth a load more wedge. Plenty of instructions provided by Scottoiler on correct fitment on line for different models of bikes. With the Vac one needs a bit of use to suss the optimum feed level and tweak it up a bit when the rain comes.

    Had one on mine since I bought it nearly 5 years ago.  Completely hassle free, just top it up every few hundred miles or so.  I use chainsaw oil which is basically the same as the proprietary stuff and much, much cheaper.

    I have the electronic one, easy to fit with plenty of info on the scottoiler website. The only advantage with the electronic one is that it doesn't lube when you are stationary, only when you're moving and you can adjust it on the fly. I have mine mounted under the rear seat with the control unit on the bars, that way, you can see when it's working. If you want photos of my installation let me know.

    I have a Cobrra Nemo 2.

    I've had a Scottoiler before, this is easier to fit and cheap (though I don't know how it compares to current Scottoiler prices) and does the job brilliantly.  :028:

    Hi there .
    make your own oiler for a fraction of the price,from a chainsaw primer some piping and a brake reservoir.it will use a lot less oil and no fling and the satisfaction is great. :152:

    I have recently fitted a Tutoro chain oiler. No wiring or electronics, no vacuum supply, very neat easy installation, fully automatic, British made design. And it works!

    I'll post a more detailed report with photos soon - the bike is covered in grime at present.
    Who in their right mind would design a vehicle that falls over when it stops?
