Just fitted the Cameleon Oiler to the DL 650.
Has had good reviews and seems up there with the Tuturo et al.
Compact unit, works off a hot switch mine is wired throught the Fuze Block.
Easy to find a spot to fit it to.
The oil is stored in a long flexible tube which can be routed around the frame with a vent at the highest point. The last photo shows the end of the tube, when in place it is velcroed up so it doesn't hang down. Stores about 6000 Klms worth of oil.
The rate of oiling can be adjusted fairly simply.
Have yet to take it on a long trip but will let you know how it goes. Have added a few photos.

I think you may have to adjust where the oil applicator is located. In it current location the oil will most likely not land on the chain. You want the oil to drip on the side rear sprocket close to the chain between 4 and 6 o'clock. From there centrifugal force spreads the oil outwards to the chain.

I am not sold on that system yet, although I like the thought put into it.

I was looking at this one from China, price is good.

I currently have a Loobman which is also very cheap, from UK and works fine too.

I like the manual lube idea as you can just squirt more when needed, like if you run through a lot of rain, or mud or something, give it some extra. I suppose the auto oilers allow that too right?
