I have used a scotoiler for years, now use one with large resavior behind number plate. they do give longer chain life but the scott oil is expensive. I use chainsaw chain oil, it is a lot cheaper @£5 for 5 litre and it has better antifling quality so less mess. You need to turn the feed UP in cold weather and DOWN in hot weather to keep the Scottoiler working properly though. banana.gif

o Will a Scottoiler leave less oil residue on the rim?
yes, wipes off easily
o Is it difficult to set up the Scottoiler for rigth amount of oil?
no
o Do you have to tweek these settings every 100 kms?
no only change setting during winter as oil gets thicker as temperature falls

o Are you all happy with your Scottoiler?
very happy


Just saves me typing it all again!

My bikes done 21000 miles with about 20000 with the scotoiler. I ride in all weathers all year round. The rear sprocket shows very little, if any, sign of wear...this says something I'm sure.

Coming in late on this subject, whilst the Scottoiler is a good product, this one, as described at ....


www.Pro-Oiler.com


is way ahead. I have three of them fitted (one on each bike)


the web site is very comprehensive, and the system, once set, is very reliable.

Looks like what Buck Roger's would put on his bike laugh.gif

Not sure if I want more electronics / mechanics on my bike, it may all be grand and smart but it rarely helps making bikes more reliable, esp in winter.

The Scottie may be less advanced and precise but it works well enough to make chains last forever and that's what counts.

I agree to a point, and I'm only speaking as I've found, i.e. they work, and work well, better than the scotties I have had previously.

But each to their own!

They also claim not to need adjustment for different temperatures, which would be a huge advantage over the Scott Oiler. I spend alot of time when touring adjusting the Scottoiler to try and keep up with the changing temperatures, something that eliminated that problem has got to be good.

That's true but I just don't worry too much if it's a bit too lean or too generous (greasing up a chain is not rocket science after all); I run it between 3 and 6, usually only change it when seasons pass by (although getting 13 degrees Celcius in December means I am still on full UK-summer schedule good.gif ).

What would be nice though is automatic adjusting when it starts to rain: this is what really changes lubrication requirements. So if the Pro-oiler gets an extra sensor and a couple of lines of code added to the software I could change my mind. cool.gif

Alternatively, I have seen people fitting the oiler-container in the dashboard, enabling adjustment on the go. But that's for true Scottoiler-enthusiasts-only I guess rolleyes.gif

No need for wires!

use eyes ... Oh look its raining ... extend finger or thumb, push + button ....... more oiling. Reverse procedure for when it stops raining! laugh.gif






Joking aside, it is an excellent piece of kit, (the oil bottle is about the size of two packet of 20 cigs strapped together).

Christ, I'm starting to sound like a bloody salesman! (I actually have no connection to the company at all, just to put the record straight!)

Incidentally i finally changed the sprocks and chain at 24000 miles (but that was only cos it went in for a major service for valve clearances etc, so could easily have got more miles - just seemed convenient to do the whole lot at once)
