chain oilers
« on: November 29, 2020, 09:56:02 AM »
what's the best chain oilers out there that actually work how they are supposed to, being looking at a
cobrra but seen some reviews   that say they leaked oil when the bike was stationary. :148:

Mine came with a Scottoiler eSystem on it. I wouldn't have paid for one but think it's a very good product. I've got a standard Scottoiler waiting for me to fit to the T120.

Tutoro for me every time. Brilliant after sales and spare replacement parts are readily available. Simple installation and not complicated.

I've used Scottoilers (Two), Lubeman and Tuturo.

I prefer the Tuturo. Works well and needs no vaccuum or electrical connections.

The Cobrra is fine, the tricky thing is to cut the hose exactly at 90 and flat so it fits and seals
on the reservoir, I redid the cut once (razor blade) and it never leaked since !

The amount of oil needed between road conditions is so different, that I prefer the Cobrra as
you can yourself give any numbers of turns.
I usually do my daily 50km commute back home and if it rains I'll give some turns 10min before
arriving home and my chain will have the proper oil film, so it does not rust and if it does not rain
well I don't need to as much.

Also after almost a year of use and 12'000km, I've used maybe 2dl of oil at most, with the cost
of 80W90 my lubrication this year cost me 12x less than chain cans, the Cobrra is allready repaid !

I like the cobrra. Had one fitted on my last 2 bikes. Never had a leak. As Dj says fit it correctly, no worries.

Had scottoilers on previous bikes. But never really rated them. Too fiddly to get the flow rate right. They say thats not a problem with the electrical version, but they're way too expensive for an oiler for me.

I've had Scottoilers on all modern bikes for the past 25 years, currently on 3 bikes, the 800 has the eSystem, it's excellent, fit & forget, just remember to top it up every 1,000miles. Set at one drip/45 secs.

I couldn't get on with the E oiler, fiddly and too many settings, I much prefer the old vacuum manual version now fitted to my XR.
