Its a wee bit of the subject of GPS so feel free to delete this thread (admin), for use experienced bike owners, is scottoiler worth it or not? I have heard people say that it can be dangerous as the oil can end up on your back tyre? I am going to buy a full new chain kit at the end of winter so new sprockets and chain and want to get the most life out of it. I use the bike every day to commute to work and often take it out at the weekends.

If your using the bike for commuting then get a scottoiler . I did commuting on a bandit and got totally fed up with constantly spraying oil on the chain during the winter after fitting one I did 15000 miles on the one chain and it still looked new and I didnt have to adjust for stretch very often either.
Just to make sure they dont delte this for off topic .Any news on the Rider yet Laughing

Definitely worth it, very rarely have to adjust the chain and I seem to be getting more life but I can't say I've been counting the miles. Perfectly fine as long as you take a few minutes to set the flow rate like someone has already mentioned.

I wouldn't have one just because GSXR thous don't do Scott Oilers.

That said they are very good and well worth it on a commuter bike. As an aside, my original chain is lasting very well (7500 miles and adjusted it 3 times). I do apply chain oil with a toothbrush weekly or so after cleaning the bike.

Sooooo....... thumbs up but not in my back yard.... I mean back end!!!

When I sold my Sprint 900, the chain had been on the bike for approx. 20,000 miles with pleanty of life left. As above posts no problems with oil on tyre. I had the high capacity resovoir - well worth it.

It's like engine oil, but a lot thinner I'm told ;)

I've had a scottoiler put on my wife's bike (which does have a chain) - wouldn't have a chain driving bike without one!

Just don't put them on the belt driving bikes - the belts + oil == not funny. At least with shaft driving putting a redundant scottoiler just wastes money and effort....

I had a scottoiler on an ER5 and it worked fine. Got a loobman on my next bike - an SV650 - and that didn't work so well - bits kept breaking and clogging, although it kept the chain in good nick. Now I just spray the chain as I only ride occasionally (used to be every day when I used the auto-oilers).

I'd definitely get a scottoiler if I started riding every day again.

My Scottoiler works a treat, can't imagine that chain lubing nonsense, not after every drop of rain we get in this country!

Scottoilers are worth there weigh in gold as far as I'm concerned. previous bike was a CBR 1000F. I added one after fitting new chain /sprockets- fantastic results. before , the old chain was always being re-adjusted and was constantly having chain lube applied. After I fitted the 'touring'size scottoiler (easy to fit and set up), I found hardly needed to adjust chain and I only filled up bottle once a year. piece of cake. I set mine up for one drop every 45 secs. I found this was good in dry/ rain regardless. Ok , the rear wheel gets a bit mucky, but easy to clean oil spray off when I washed the bike . I used Pro-cleaner to keep bike clean (it is really for dirt bikes, so if it cleans them etc...).

Are you a member of any owner clubs? I joined Honda owners group and during a club Honda demo day at Steve Kings place in Abingdon nr Oxford, i not only got to thrap some new demo bikes, I also got a great deal on the scottoiler. Double winner.

there is another choice....You could always buy a cruiser like mine with shaft..no chain tee hee.

I've fitted loads of scottoilers to all kinds of bikes and I would recomend them to anybody.the only thing I would say is to get a dual injector. Busters are doing them with the standard kit for about 70 .
The oil washes off wth soap and water and when you change your bike you can transfer it for a couple of quid for some new pipe.
