chain oiler

HI Nick hope this is still relevent.

I bought the deluxe tutoro auto oiler kit a few months ago and am very pleased the chain has kept clean in the recent bad weather, and its easy to set up though getting the right drip rate takes a little time.

if i was to do it again i would buy the basic auto oiler and a dual feed nozzle and save £20 as i made my own bracket so did not need any of the extras in the deluxe kit.

In all top bit of kit
regards all

it does work in my country in a garage where all of my friends do their bikes, we put almost 10 of those things on different bikes and riding styles, and it is perfect

I agree! A fine piece of kit. As long as you remember to turn it on!

I fitted the automatic one. It oils chain only when riding due to the momentum, braking, acceleration etc. Works well

I bought one great

Thanks for the help I got one and put it on my DL 650 it has been great. simple to install. The setting that works for me is 1/4 to 1/2 turn anymore and I go through the oil very quickly but it could be I live in the tropics so it is hot.
I am thinking of getting one for my DRZ 400 (it is nice keeping the bike simple but so is getting longer out of chain and sprockets)
I would go for basic kit as well.

I have one on my Yamaha XTZ660Z. I like the simplicity of it. I have it routed to drip onto the chain at the front sprocket. I carry a half litre of chain saw oil or ATF,what ever I have as it were. I always forget to turn mine off...ho hum

After I trip to Morocco I found that it was leaking at the base. I took it apart,cleaned it and re glued it with plastic glue cement..the likes of what you use to join plastic guttering or build model airplanes.

All works well now.
