Does anyone have or has anyone fitted one of these devices?
If so was it easy to fit?
And did you use the universal kit or is there a specific kit that is better than the rest for the Strom?
Finally if you fitted one would you go for the extra expense of the dual feed injector?
Just to calrify, I didn't say or mean to imply "don't buy this. Buy that." I don't have any personal experience with any chain lube system so I will defer to others.
I just thought you might want to check it out so you know what other options you have. By all means check out the Loobman as well and buy the one that best suits your needs and budget.
The thing I like about the Pro-oiler is that it is automated according to mileage rather than time and it is fully adjustable while riding. You can turn it up if you go through a rain storm or turn it off if you're stuck in a traffic jam so you don't soak your tire. And you can do it all without stopping. Is it worth 10 times as much as a Loobman? That's your call.
The Scottoiler can only be adjusted at stops and will continue to drip oil as long as the engine is running, whether the bike is moving or not. And it will drop the same amount of oil on the chain in a given time period regardless of speed.
The Loobman is manually operated but should (according to their website) only be charged at stops and the bottle has to be mounted within reach.
Like I say, these conclusions are from published literature not from personal experience so feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

Hey Vstromper, my post was supposed to be taken with a smile, a large smile. I meant no harm by it. I've never used either system before so I'm not talking from experience. I did just order a Loobman recently. I figure, for the few bucks it cost I can't go wrong. Even if I only learn that I hate it.
What I don't understand is why get one of these when other people don't even lube there chains with anything other than Wd-40. Is there any facts out there as to whether or not we need to be this anal with chain lubrication on todays sealed o-ring chains?
I've been using a chain wax myself so far.
