    I’ve read the 2015 Forum entry on chain oilers, but certainly the Scottoiler range seems to have been developed since then. What are the pro’s and con’s of oilers, based on members’ experience, and are there any recommendations? I’m doing what research I can, via the web and other bikers, but any info will be useful.

    I use an oiler called LOOBMAN which is simple and inexpensive and only requires the occasional input from the rider. Judging by the present indications I will get 60000 km on the chain and sprockets on the Tiger. However equally as important to oiling the chain is cleaning it regularly with good old kerosene and expensive chain oilers won’t do that for you!

    Thanks, Andrew and Malcolm.

    Andrew, is your Scottoiler vacuum or electrically operated? I’ve been getting some good feedback on the electrically operated one.

    Malcolm, I agree on chain cleaning. It’s the spray-on, tacky lubricants I’m not keen on – seem to collect grit, thus making a good grinding paste!

    Thanks again, both.

    Nemo is great, no electrical fitting required, shop around on price, there is also a Chinese copy now

    Hi Adrian,

    Thanks for that. Seems simple, efficient and a lot cheaper than Scottoilers. Do you use a Nemo and, if so, do you get any excess oiling?

    Cheers

    I use a Tutoro chain oiler, simple and works very well

    Yes I have the Nemo on a Multistrada, no oil leaks, just make sure it is completely full with no air on top of the oil

    Thank, everyone. That’s given me a fair bit to consider.

    I need to fit one to the DR as well but I want something that doesn’t need to be filled every ride. How many km’s will they do between fillups?

    +1 for the Tutoro. Only used it on 2 road bikes so far but no electrical or vacuum connections required. Dead simple. I get at least 800kms on a fill. Bought from here:~ http://www.fastbikegear.co.nz/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=323 but like everywhere else they seem to lack stock at the moment thanks to the CCP virus.

    Looked into the Tutoro, but these no longer have an NZ distributer, although they are available from the UK manufacturer. Shame really, since they seem simple, not requiring attachment to vaccuum or battery. Fastbikegear informed me that they were no longer importing the product.

    So, back to the Scottoiler, I guess.
