Is anyone out there using one of those devices, attached near/above the drive chain, which lubes the chain by releasing drops off oil onto the chain, not sure what releases it ? Scottoiler is one brand, there are others...
Would like to hear if this works well & is worth the investment.

Thank you !

We use to run one of these on our 2012 Wee's and they were really good, not much fling and the oil reserve last for ages.

But when we moved them onto our 2014 Vee's we could not get them to work properly. It appears they were getting EMI which was mucking up the system and it didn't matter what we tried they just didn't work the same.

So we have removed them and fitted these, haven't been on long but so far there is little fling, easy to adjust and look like they go awhile between fills.

Scottoiler, Tutoro, chameleon, pro oiler, Loobman, and others I do not recall at the moment.

I use a Tutoro. No vacuum lines, no wires, just mount and run the tubing. Does a lovely job of keeping the chain shiny, too.

I use a ScottOiler E-System and it works fine without leaving drips on the garage floor .

Pretty much fill & forget , great on long journeys , just top up every 1000 kms or so .

If I was to get another bike I'd probably use the new ScottOiler X-System which is even easier to set up and cheaper .

Surprisingly good. There's one mod to them which improves this a LOT, and that's to put a small fuel filter in the output line somewhere to act as a reservoir and spread the drips out. Plumbed one onto my wife's bike and set it up to drip on the chain just before the front sprocket. She loves the lack of maintenance, just gives it a pump monday morning and otherwise fergetaboutit.

Yes, you can spend a lot more but this is simple, inexpensive and reliable and also no mess once you learn not to overdo it.

Osco is another name you may want to check out. It's not an auto-oiler in the sense that you can forget about it altogether, but it's probably the simplest to install.

You mount a reservoir somewhere to the frame, in a way that it's accessible when on the bike. This reservoir has a plunger that you pull, and a spring then pulls the plunger back into the reservoir. This feeds a measured amount of oil into the oil line. This line is zip-tied along the frame and the swingarm to a convenient location somewhere above the chain. It drips the oil on the chain over a period of about 15 seconds. So during this period you have to be moving relatively slowly, or the oil will immediately fling off. Other than mounting the reservoir and the oil line, there's nothing you need to do to set it up.

Other systems are automatic in the sense that they release a drip every x seconds. But these then require some vacuum or electric connection to detect that the bike is running in the first place, and to adjust the flow to the chain speed. This means more wiring.

Another vote for Tuturo.

I've had mine for 6 months. Once adjusted properly, it's pretty much maintenance free. Been happy with it.
