Tutoro installation on my 2016 DL1000
I thought i would start a thread about my tutoro installation that might help others. I posted in the 1000 forum, but i suppose it could apply to other models.
I made a spacer to set back the oiler in the frame so it wouldnt be as exposed to damage and weather. I bought bolts as the same metric thread as what came with the oiler, but longer. (tip i always follow, always buy metric hardware for accessories even if its not integral to the motorcycle. Keeps the wrenches easier to have on board) I also threaded the spacer to keep everything tight, as i didnt want the oiler to rotate. Its worked well so far.
For the nozzle i end, i added a piece of thick gauge copper wire to give a solid mounting point closer to the sprocket. Ive ridden about 100 miles so far and its held up great.
Other tips. Follow the instructions, start at the nozzle end and work backwards, simple but key. Im riding in 45 deg weather and 1/4 flow control opening has worked well. (original Tutoro oil, not hi temp). For something like this where youre using cable ties that need to stay tight, i always leave a little of the tie left when trimming until it stretches a little so you can tighten in a week or so. Nothing else really, i took my time because i wanted a nice clean and reliable install so a couple hours.
