Scotoiler
« on: December 03, 2010, 11:29:08 AM »
Anyone reckon a Scotoiler will fit on? Or thought about a way to keep the chain in good shape?

I am coming from a belt drive BMW, so clearly i dont like messing around with oily stuff

consider using a dry chain lube

Hi Healdem,

I've had great luck over the years with Maxima Racing Lubricants - Chain Wax.  Since it's more like a wax than an oil,  it's cleaner and less prone to chain "fling".   I don't know if it's available on the east side of "the pond",  but you can try here  http://www.maximausa.com/shopping/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5&products_id=28    :300:

I strongly recommend this stuff -- it gave me nearly 32,000 miles out of the stock chain on my V-Strom.

I like the BelRay chain wax and the Dupont teflon products. Auto oilers make a mess, and conventional oil attracts dirt requiring far more maint. in my experience. The wax and teflon don't create as much of an adhesive effect for dirt, and require far less maint., just need a fresh spritz on the chain every 500-1000 miles, clean every 2500-3000.

if/when I get my Tiger I'm gonna pop round to Scottoiler (less than 20 miles away) and let them measure and fit a kit, and hopefully a touring reservoir too. had them on all bar my first bike and never had a issue with them. the nice lady I spoke to at the NEC said the earleir the better.
Countries I've ridden: Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Spain, Andorra, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Canada (hired bike).
Memorable places: Applecross, Barra, Calanish, Lascaux, Pyrenees, Connemara, Tofino, Lillooet, Sulphur Mountain, Nordkapp, Dalsnibba, Borgund stavkirke.

I would hope to fit a Scottoiler with the flexi-tube-reservoir under the seat like I have on my Versys, if there is room under the seat for them.
I gave up on the larger reservoir behind the numberplate after years of using them because they can leak oil out of the vent when it's hot. Messy.
