Think I am also right in saying that Scottolier systems dual knib is not suitable for the CR - but I think I noticed one of the alternative makers had got a mini dual applicator shown on a VFR800Vtec.

you can fit the dual injector but you Will have to drill the lower chain guard below swing arm. seen this done on vfr forum.
I've sussed a real tidy way of fitting scottoiler using the hrc behind number plate but profi. and wurth dry lube have a strong following on vfr forum

Strats, I'm on the fence regarding a Scottoiler. (I'm definately not a skeptic, just undecided  :084:).

Does it lubricate both sides of the chain ? Does the Scottoiler reduce the frequency chain tensioning ? does the chain actually last 7 times longer as the website claims ? In the past, I normally replaced the chain every 10K miles.  and lastly - why is the scottoiler (or a similar device) not offered by any manufacturer as a standard or additional fitment ?   Again, I'm not a skeptic.. just voicing my questions

Only lubricates on side of the chain, capillary action does the rest. There is however a dual outlet if you wish as an accessory. There are reports of between 45000 and 90000K"s per chain.

Oh, and Scottoiler is offered as a genuine BMW accessory.
I don't try to explain to people why I ride a Motorcycle. For those who understand no explanation is needed! For those who don't understand, no explanation is possible..

It only seems a few years ago that a Scottoiler on a BMW would have been one accessory too far :008:
