No worries Doughnut. I have always used Scottoilers before and they're very good, apart from a couple of niggles I have with them - the fling on the back tyre and the fact that if you forget to top up the reservoir it can cause an air bubble so you have to re-prime it.

I have used Scottoilers for over 20 years but BEWARE, do not set it to do more than drip at a slow rate, don't let it trickle.
Last year I had a chain failure where the x-rings failed and the chain seized up. It was only on the one side where the oil runs down the sprocket side onto the chain. The other side x-rings were fine.
I had overfilled the Scottoiler flexy-reservoir and it ran much too fast for a couple of days.
Clearly the x-rings were dodgy but neither the chain manufacturer nor Scottoil accepted any blame.  Mine is not the only instance of it so keep the flow right down. It also stops oil fling off so that is good and it lasts much longer.

Hi, I've used a McCoi chain oil system on my Vstrom 650 for 2 years. It's electronic, pump driven system and works perfect and doesn't matter what kind of oil I use.  But as I'm going to Tiger 800 direction I have a question probably to owners. Where can I find a wire with tachometer signal on Tiger 800? It is the best way to control this system. Mark

Until there are circuit diagrams who knows?
BUT possibly impossible as the connection between engine CPU and instruments is a CANBUS. So no specific tach wire.

54,000 km on a set of chain/sprockets?
Words fail me. That's unbelievable. Where and how do you ride?

Profi Dry Lube, or one of the electronic chain lubers, the scotoiler e system or the Pro-oiler. 

Been using Profi for 18 months now on my Tiger 1050 and in my opinion it's way better than a luber.

It's not that unusual. I got nearly 32,000 miles out of the stock chain on my Wee-Strom. I just made a habit of lubing it with that Dupont Teflon stuff every 300 or so miles, or after riding in the rain.

And no, I didn't baby the bike.

How far can you pull the chain off the rear-sprocket when you finally change it?
How do you decide when it is dead?
Maybe I change mine too soon but the front sprocket teeth are WELL worn when I do. I have never got remotely that many miles on any bike I have had.
