As my prev postings highlighted, I've just changed my chain and sprockets.

I now want to fit an automatic oiler but wanted to see if anyone else has one fitted.

I'm currently in the process of buying a house so can't justify spending 75 on a Scottoiler and I remembered the following website:
http://www.loobman.com/

It's not a rude site, just a manual chain oiler that costs less than a third of the Scottoiler or Lubetronic from Motrax. It uses normal engine oil (cheap) in a reservoir that you squeeze to prime the tube with oil. Gravity then takes over and oils your chain during your ride. I used to have one on my Suzuki GS500 and it worked well for the price. You have to remember to ride for about 10 miles or more or it will continue to drip on the sprocket and floor when you stop. Also splashes a little on your hub and wheel but no more than any other oiler.

I'm thinking of getting another one, this time for the XT.

Any thoughts?

I fitted a Scottoiler to the Bandit the first weekend I had it. It is brilliant. It works perfectly, took a couple of hours to fit, and is keeping the chain lubed just enough, with a small amount of oil on the back wheel but none on the tyre. Can't speak of chain wear yet, but looking good so far. Well worth the money.

1200S K6 - love it to bits. I had to get rid of the XT because of a problem with my hands (all detailed in another thread). The Bandit is the dog's.

Hey, well spotted. I didn't see that myself until you said. Duh.

You know what I meant.

I fitted a scottoiler when the bike was only a week old and this Saturday the bikes going in for its 12000mile service a little overdue, 13800 miles still with the original chain fitted. Looking at the condition of the chain with the weather like its been for the past few months and riding country lanes
the mechanic thought it still had plenty of life left! I think the 75-80 was well worth spending.
