Question Tutoro Auto Chain Oiler: Single or Double Nozzle Kit?

I just cleaned and lubed my chain for the first time as a new rider after a ride on wet roads and it is such a mess, plus time consuming to do regularly!

I've been reading rave reviews about the Tutoro Auto Chain Oiler system and am excited that it won't break the bank too much compared to it's farkle worth

Should I get the single or double nozzle setup for the Wee2 (2014 Vstrom 650 Adventure)?
I'd like to get single for simpler setup, less oil fling, and save money. But want to adequately lube the chain in temperatures ranging 35F <--> 95F

Does the standard kit provide everything needed for install if I go single nozzle? Or just go deluxe?

Order from Rick "Adventuretech" and the kit he sells has "both" of the nozzles kits, the single is all that is needed and what I use. I have used mine now for about 6,000 miles, including some gnarly and nasty goo mud sand silt off road in New Mexico. It works simply amazing, you just need to adjust the flow rate depending on the temps out. I have mine at just over half turn out when above 60 degrees, and will go to 3/4 turn out when below that. I have less mess than I ever had with spray lubes, and my ENTIRE chain gets coated with the single nozzle set up. I can send you pics of my install if you like, that and I am pretty familiar with this system. But......give Rick a call and he will hook you up, plus he has free tech support if needed too. Get the deluxe kit as it is the best deal going, that is what I have.

Well damn......looks like Rick isn't a dealer for them anymore.

I think I got the deluxe kit, can’t remember. I guess I did because it had both nozzles. I just did the single.

Your flow rate seems a bit much highwayman, I don't have fling like that.

Anyone know if there is a source for Tutoro in the US now? Looking on their website I don't see any US distributors (stockists as they refer to them) listed.

Ordered the deluxe kit from England on Ebay.

Not sure if it's going on the DRZ or the Vee yet. Thinking DRZ just cuz it's newish and spokes are a pain to clean of chain lube. And I plan to ride the snot out of the thing this year now that I've got it set up with an oversized tank, windshield, volt-meter and heated gear outlet. Flatlander skid plate arriving soon. The Vee shall slide into a well deserved retirement from everyday use over the next year and become more of a touring/winter commuter. That's the plan anyway, if the DRZ gets the job done for most of the year.

I wish I'd done this a decade ago with the Vee. Now it's just, like, myeh. The rear is caked in fling and will stay that way forever. Unless I really like the Tutoro and decide the Vee needs one too.

I'll likely use the double nozzle since I ride a lot in the rain and salt. I've always been conscious of spraying both sides of the chain; otherwise the rust sets in during the winter months.

DL1000K6 Two wheels good; four wheels bad.

Ebay is now the US source, per Rick at Adventuretech.
