Just installed a Tutoro Auto Chain Oiler

Just installed a Tutoro Auto Chain Oiler. This design is finally available in the US from Adventuretech (I am not affiliated with them). The Oiler design is all mechanical and works from the bike's motion, no electric or vacuum source is needed. Just mount it and it's ready to go.

I did make my own reservoir mounting plate and a mounting bracket for the twin-feed nozzle. It dribbles a little oil on the chain as you ride and appears to work very well.

Here is where I purchased the oiler. He does sell a Deluxe and Standard version

Thanks for the pics, Ned. Are you taking orders for the brackets?

Zip ties

MAke sure that your Zip ties are UV stable. I put some on my TV antenna mast and they fell apart after a few years.

No I am not into manufacturing but you could ask Rick at Adventuretech if he would be interested in making them. He is selling the Tutoro chain oilers. I would be willing to provide the templates (PM me if interested). I made my brackets from some aluminum plate I had laying around. Tutoro does make a nozzle mount but it is not V-Strom specific. Here is their mount:
Anchor Kit - AdventureTech, LLC.


Thanks for comment on the zip-ties. This is what Tutoro uses to mount their system. These are black and that would provide some UV protection but I will keep an eye on them. I could upgrade to a stainless steel hose clamp.

I fitted one of these to mine a couple of months ago, it works really well using chain saw bar oil, I'm very happy with it.

There are holes in the sky where the rain gets in,
and the holes are very small, that's why rain is thin.

Never saw these before. Have been using a Scottoiler for years. Wouldn't be without one.

Liking the simplicity of this design - the Scottoiler looks great, but not cheap and for the electronic version having an LCD display for an oiler just seems like overkill. Looking like another addition to the farkle wishlist... Wonder why these seem to be all developed in UK? Brits have special chain oiling skills?

Yes, they do, they've got a proud tradition of making bikes that leak oil. Some of it is bound to end up on the chain.
