I should be getting my Tornado back soon (fingers crossed) and am looking to refit the Scottoiler off of my oil Aprilia RSV..just wondered if anybody had any experience with other solutions sprays etc.Does anyone remove their chains to soak or scrub them with cleaner ? Done some searching for automatic oilers and found a few :

The Pro-oiler @ £140

Lubeman @ £17 cheep cheep (previously Chaintec I think)

One Second Chain Oiler from Holland KETTING SMEREN IN EEN SECONDE !!

Acumen CL10 @ £86 (very new this one)

The Scottoiler from £70 to £95

Hi Mark,

I've fitted the Pro-oiler to my TRE and I rate it highly. I wanted something that wasn't big and ugly like the Scottoiler and this fitted the bill nicely.

It takes a signal feed from the speedo sensor so it only works when the bike is moving unlike the Scottoiler and the oil is dispensed by a small electric pump so it's not effected by temperature changes, again unlike the Scottoiler.

It's a great piece of kit and it would be the first thing that I would fit to any new bike. Have a look in my gallery for some pics of the fitting.

Ive tried a chaintec before and never really got it working properly. I think there is a ball bearing or counter weight inside the unit which pumps the oil though as the bike moves. 3/10
Also had a scottoiler for a while. These are quality units and work well if you can get em set up exactly right. Can get a bit messy if you dont. If i remember it work on vacuum from the engine. 7/10
Not sure if id use one on my nelli. Think ill stick to the anti fling sprays. :)

The best way is to take it off and give it a good scrub but if I remember rightly you need to break a link to get the chain off or it means dangling it over the swing arm which is, again, real messy. Always meant to try one of those brush units that clip on to your chain and you spray the cleaner/lube into it.

I removed a ScottOiler to fit a Pro-Oiler. WAY better. Not as much oil used because it is precise, so not as messy. Easier to adjust while riding. The oil viscosity is not as critical. Can use very low viscosity that will wash the chain of debris. Not temperature dependant. The list goes on.....

Mark,

And we haven't even begun to discuss those available within the 'porn'
industry!! :doh:

Their chains don't run at quite the same temperatures - But any 'anti-fling' properties might be worth considering....:p
