Chain Oiler
on: 15 Oct 20, 06:50:50
Hi all.
I'm looking to fit a chain oiler to my bike, think I'm going down the Tuturo line, so my question is : Has anyone got one fitted to their bike and if so where did you mount the reservoir.

I know it's not what you asked but the PDoiler is the best oiler solution.

My personal opinion of course.

:461: but I'm biase, had a scotoiler E system for several years on 2 other bikes, installed a pd oiler on this bike after reading comments and would do so again if needed.
Set up once, dial it in then top up oil every 3k miles all nice and simple and half the price of the scotoiler E system

X-Ring ta-C coated chains will be available in 2021 for the general market... no more oiling required and less friction and efficiency.

I will try one when the OEM wears out...

Will be interesting.  I imagine how well the chain lasts depends on how well it will stay clean.

Yes, indeed interesting.
Regina Chain (an italian company that R&D'ed the solution, now equip exclusively as OEM some BMW as option like the liter class engines like the XR), but in 2021 the ta-c chain will be released in the normal aftermarket.

Don't know the price, but I've heard that they are good, it would be a good solution fitting a sport tourer, less waste, less tensioning/checking, less friction and more efficiency.
