Seriously though Luke......it's basically an automatic chain oiler......but you are best off using Scottoil in it.....firstly because it's been designed for use with that viscosity of oil.....and secondly because the bottles of Scottoil come with a connector doofer that make topping the reservoir up easier...... :wink:


As to whether it's worth having a Scottoiler on the bike.....well, that's been debated at length on here before.......personally I think the Scottoiler is a great device.....but others will disagree..... :lol:

I lube my chain with MucOff dryPTFE every 200 miles. Got 25,000 outta the last one. I have seen Scottoilered bikes with oil all over the back wheel though!

 

Yeah they are quite messy, but they do the job well.

ok, i have filled it up with scottoil blue :D


getting two drops aminute on idle is a bit of a black art tho!

I believe you should get 1-2 drops when not on idle. Idle is used to get the oil down the tube to the sprockets once run dry, but then you should alter the settings to get it at 2 per minute

So I need to do this at least 4 times on a weekend 'Challenge' trip!


I'll stick with the 'cruiser version' Scotoiler.

Scotoiler all the time for me.

A week long trip to Scotland over a thousand miles one top up of oil and forget about it. Otherwise i would have to carry a can of lube and start messing about lubing after a full days riding, when personally i just want to jump in a nice hot shower.

Always carry it in case, as ive so far witnessed one that got knocked by something and started missing the chain and so it had leaked onto the floor for the rest of the journey so the chain was bone dry at the destination a couple of days later!

And another broke and dumped its contents everywhere :lol:


Like people who have cars with backlit dashboards so forget to put their lights on, fitting a scottoiler then never checking the chain may end in tears!


Plus in Scotland over 1000 miles you'd only needed to spray the chain before leaving and another after 600 miles :mrgreen:


Not saying the method is wrong, I may be going to Le mans, via Switzerland and we agreed scottoilers should be used so we carry less. But we must check daily! :)
