Tutoro Automatic Chain Oiler

I am incredibly pleased to let everyone know that we are becoming the exclusive US distributor for Tutoro Chain Oilers.

The Tutoro Auto does not require a tie-in to the vacuum or electrical system.

More Information coming soon. http://www.adventuretech.biz/tutoro-chain-oilers.html

The deluxe kit appears to be the way to go for V-Stroms owners.

Neat. I was debating between the Tutoro and the PDOiler and you just made my mind up for me. Let me/us know when you get your shipment in!

How does it work? If there are no electrics or vacuum what stops it from dripping all over the garage when parked?

Garage
The manual version is just a reservoir with a tap. Simple and inexpensive.
The Auto version uses a weight inside the reservoir chamber that jiggles when the bike moves, opening a little valve. The oil flow is them controlled by the flow adjuster on the side of the unit. When stationary it closes the aperture.

TUTORO Auto 10 Step Guide - 8.Priming the oiler - YouTube

Like Dark Angel said, when the weight moves up and down (doesn't have much side to side play in the video) it opens up a small valve and oil comes out

The above link is to a video that was intended for beta testers back when the oiler was first designed. It answers a lot of questions.

Tutoro has an excellent video discussing installation and use.

The key points for people interested in an auto oiler are:

Super easy installation.

Turns on and off automatically - no dripping on the garage floor and no need to remember to turn it on when you ride.

No worries about a malfunction affecting either the electrical power or creating a vacuum leak.

Super simple reliable operation.
