  10. Hi @Turbogirlie, don't think your GT750 would be compatible with E10 fuel!! Bit to old, I may be wrong, but I would be very wary of using it.
  11. Hi @Hoggs, Always used scottoilers, easy to set up, Once you primed system, turn the dial back to any number and then start engine, on tickover you should be getting one drip every 60secs, that's what Scottoiler recommend, depending on length of rides it can takes some time fiddling about at first, but well worth it in the end, this year not adjusted chain yet, and we have done a few miles!! Just remember once set only alter small increments, for long wet rides There is also information on Scottoilers website, on set up.
