scotoiler mark 7 is say 60 - 70 quid, probably an hour at a bike ship so say 30 quid. They do come with really good instructions, think TC just fitted one himself.

£53 +36 p&p brand new E-Bay (£69 new)

fitting intructions arnt bad and you can download more instructions from the Scottoiler website.

The hardest thing i found was deciding where to put the reservoir.

Once thats decided, run a tube to the rear spocket.

Another tube to the Vacuum pipe, cut that and insert a tee peice.

connect both pipes to the res 1 top, 1 bottom.

fill res with oil, prime the system (blow oil through the pipe to rear spocket)

reconnect bleeder pipe.

Run engine and alter feed speed until you get 2 drops per minute.

Thats it in a nutshell. Good Luck

I got mine fitted at Yam dealers and they did a top job hiding it away.....so much so I still haven't found it :lol:


Seriously though I paid just short of a £100 supply and fit :)

So, what's the verdict on these? Warts 'n' all.


I'm thinking of getting one, but I don't want oil dripping on my garage floor... :S

 

As for drips - they work by vacuum - there should be no dripping ...


But they do render a nice amount of "fling" to your chain guard and, depending on how effective your chain guard is, adjacent areas too :wink:

Wowser, old thread!!!


I actually went to get one from the shop I bought my bike from and was talked out of it. TBH, it's a 5 minute job to lube the chain after each ride.


If you rack on the miles on a regular basis, ie commuting then they are not a bad idea, but weekend / occasional bikers like myself, it ain't worth it.

Fitted a 'standard' one on my first 1200 Bandit - No problems but had to fill it regularly.


Got a 'Touring' resovoir type (fits behind numberplate) on new Bandit 1250 - Looks like I'll get a full year without refil. Oh, this was a 'freebee' extra negotiated when I ordered the bike. :) :) :).


Whatever & however, got to be worth the money unless you do the chain lube every trip :sad:

Sure they didn't just pocket your £100 and told you "Its well hidden, you'll never find it" :lol: :D :lol:
