Tuturo Oiler Questions

I've seen the Tuturo Chain Oiler discussed a lot here I plan to get one and install it on my 2014 DL650 ADV. I do mostly road riding with a little dirt/gravel road stuff. I have a few questions and would really appreciate input from those who have a lot more experience (which is pretty much everyone!).
  • The Tuturo site shows "Pro" "Deluxe" and "Standard" kits. What do you recommend? It looks like the Standard kit would have everything needed, but I have no experience.
  • I have read here that the twin nozzle does not actually work as well as the single. True?
  • Do you use Turturo oil, or have you found something that works as well?
  • They show some optional accessories, such as a "Stone Shield" a "Nozzle Positioning Kit" and a "Helix Nozzle Positioning Device." Any of those useful?

Tuturo Oiler Questions

I just use the single nozzle and Tutoro oil. There are suggestions on the Tutoro website of what alternative oils will work, but a quart lasts quite a while. I ended up with 1/4 to 1/2 turn on the valve. Works great, just used what came in the kit no accessories.

Standard unless you need the brackets

I've put the Pro on my DL650, and the standard on my SFV650.

The pro comes with a handy extra bracket that while good you can probably work around, depends on the bike a lot.

The DL650 is running my second dual nozzle, the SFV is running its first single. The single is certainly more robust - the dual is pretty fragile. They probably work as well as each other. My DL650 also has the stone guard - probably don't need it but I thought - rocks and all...

I ended up 3d printing a bracket for the SFV as it was problematic.

If I was you I'd buy the basic kit, single nozzle and work it out. But use their oil - you use so little of it may as well use original.

I found that the double nozzle was a nuisance when remounting the rear wheel. Imho it is not necessary and thereafter I always went with a single nozzle which worked as well.

I have used all sorts of oils in my Tutoro. Usually it is a good quality oil left over from bike or car oil changes. A fiend uses chainsaw oil that is used for lubing the cutting blade. The Tutoro is not fussy 😉

The Standard Kit is sufficient to do the job.

Lastly this is imho one of the better chain oilers. My former Scottoiler always made a mess around the rear wheel despite my best efforts at adjustment. The Tutoro flow is much more precise and easier to modulate.

I run the deluxe and the single nozzle, their oil is the best IMHO and a container lasts a very long time. I too am 1/2 to 1/4 turn depending on the temps, I find this to apply the oil just about right.

I am using the single tip Tutoro, even though I bought the delux kit. The oil and bottle that comes in the delux kit comes in handy.

In terms of oil. I am finally finishing up the oil that came with the delux kit. it's been almost one year.

In its replacement, I have heard the Hydrolic Mobile Vactra can be used. It's certainly cheaper than the Tutoro Oil.

All good stuff above. Single feed nozzles work fine, are far more robust, an dirt cheap to replace. Lowe's has some 1/8 tubing that looks identcal to the 3 mm Tutoro single feed nozzles so you never have to go without. Get a life to supply for a couple of bucks.

Lots of good info for you here. As to oil, ordering from Tutoro, the shipping is as much or more than the oil! I’ve been running ISO 32 hydraulic oil. Picked up a gallon at Home Depot for around $13 that will last a looonnng time. I may try an ISO 68 as the 32 may be a little thin for higher ambient temps although now that I’m out of Florida, that may not be as much of an issue.

Yee Haw. Finally got mine working again. I glued a piece of rigid stainless tubing to the Tutoro bracket on the swing arm. It has a bend towards the sprocket at about a 45 degree angle and at the end has a one inch piece of tubing just barely touching the sprocket at about the 7 o'clock position. No nozzle. They kept falling off. Now my chain should go 100K miles, that is if I keep the bike that long.
