Chain Oiler

Hi I have just bought a Tutoro Automatic Oiler. I cant find a suitable place to fix the oiler to the bike on 2012 DL1000. I am wondering if the PDoiler is easy to fit. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here is a link to a thread I started some time ago on the Tutoro oiler. https://www.stromtrooper.com/product-...tallation.html
There are some pics of it installed on different bikes although I don't think there are any of earlier model 1000. You may still get some ideas from it to help you out.

I mounted mine to my pannier racks. Others mounts theirs in near the left side passenger foot peg.

If you check out the thread posted by Strongarm you can see where I mounted mine, I know the 2014 thou is a bit different but it might give you an idea of what I did.

Heres a Youtube guide on the Tutorio oiler.....might get one of those babys myself...looks reasonably easy...even for me:mrgreen:

This is not for a DL1000, looks to be a Trumpy Tiger but the principle is the same.

My reservoir:


My delivery tip:


I used a <gasp!> Scottoiler bracket to secure the tip where I wanted it after losing the oringinal tip thanks to the large cut-outs in that rear sprocket. Tutoro have their own bracket now.

If you ride a LOT off road, or pretty much all dirt roads, you might be better off with an "enduro style" mount, where the oil delivery is directly onto the chain just behind the front sprocket. It's messier but prevents rocks, sticks etc from grabbing the tip and line, and a little oil on the back tyre makes no difference on the dirt.

Thank you.

Thank you for your replies. My pannier frame is different on the 1000 and tucks up under the back guard. I found one for another 650 but where it is mounted my helmet lock is in that spot. If I put it between the passenger left peg I feel it will stick out too far.

I got the information needed.

I have been contacted by a member and if I move the helmet lock the oiler can be attach to the metal plate it was on. Thanks

Um,"0" ring chains-I tend to whack the steed on the centre stand and give the chain and Sprockets a spray every ---------when they need it,definitely take the cover off and check the primary drive and clean the gunk out and a spray-constant oilers are like lollies at eye level for 3 year olds at the supermarket,you wan't them but don't need them.
