Scotoiler is a great bit of kit, especially if you get the touring resevoir, but I'd prefer a belt drive on me boike. cool.gif

19000 miles from my chain so far and the rear sprocket is hardly worn. I've ridden all year round, though tend to avoid wet days if I can - but it has been subject to winter road crud etc.

Am I happy with the Scotoiler? Yep

Hm....been driving 22000miles with the sprocket/chain set so far....happy without Scotoiler....

I am fed up with the messy rear wheel. The different chain lubricants that I have used over the years all leave most of the oil on the rim.

Most of all I would replace the chain for a belt drive, but I cannot find any conversion kit for the 900.

My questions are:
o Will a Scottoiler leave less oil residue on the rim?
o Is it difficult to set up the Scottoiler for rigth amount of oil?
o Do you have to tweek these settings every 100 kms?
o Are you all happy with your Scottoiler?

Thanks for any feedback

/Nils


Found the Scottoiler really makes a difference to chain condition - riding year-round in all weathers. It dd get a bit enthusiastic at one time and mess up the back wheel though. Also created a front-end mess that ran on to the side-stand (Kept it rust-free!), but was easily readjusted. I'd rather over-oil than starve the chain.

Has anyone installed a Scottoiler (standard one) on their Mk1? If so, where did you mount the reservior so it was accessable and how did you run the line o the rear sprocket?

Thanks.

yes
under the seat, left hand side, tucked under the tank an ickle bit, cable tied to the bit that holds the oil tank and shock in place, easily accessible with the seat off.
also fitted a lubetube which lives under the seat.

i put mine on front sprocket, couldnt find a way of routing it to the rear where it wouldnt get munched by chain/shock and not be on display.
i get a dribble of oil down the stand every now and then, but other than that no issues at all.

if u going to RTT then i can show you there.....

I don't really like the dual nozzle, I have one on one a me bikes, it keeps clogging up and not working, I bought a single nozzle to put on instead, but it's still sitting on a shelf two months later unsure.gif , the dual nozzle is better when it works, but it's not as reliable.

I'd second that, i race a Ktm200 in enduro's and use Castrol, i know its not the same thing but i can vouch for the fact there is no 'fling' from the lube. Obviously all the mud and crud wipes away and excess from the Ktm chain, but when i took a link out there was plenty around the o rings and pins which is where it is meant to be.
The castrol goes on like liquid but soaks in well and dries to a film after about 5 mins. good.gif

Agree with the above except that I use Maxima (chain wax) Still have a 14 year old chain with no kinks or bad spots.
(do need to check for stretch though, been 'scottish weather' here the past week.)

Put 17k miles on my TDM over the last 12 months. Had a Scotty put on from approx 500 miles. Still on original chain and it looks as good as new. Wouldn't consider a chain driven bike without one!
