Scottoiler/Tutoro oiler on a 1190 ADV

Has anyone installed an oiler on their adventurer?
I just started to read some reviews and it looks promising. With my old bike I did always make a big mess of the chain oiling procedure.

I would like to make it easier for myself and install an automatic oiler.

Any tips, reviews,... ?

It has to have electronic management with ambient temperature sensor to adjust flow, otherwise pretty messy if you ride across a broad range of temperatures.

I fitted the Tutoro nice and easy to fit no wiring or vacuum problems started off with the twin oilier which soon got eaten by the chain so fitted the single which seems adequate.... the capacity is small... I have it on a very low setting and give the chain a blast with aerosol lube from time to time

Had a Scottoiler on my previous 950.

It's been pretty much useless for anything else than asphalt rides.

Either too low of a setting to wash of the grit or too high and it's always empty.

HI,
I had a turturo on my 650 wee. Kinda sorta worked, but not in the dirt. Got torn up like the other poster said.. I did the dual to single also. Got torn up…
The other problem is if you set it up for fast highway it's not enough for slow dirt and visa versa. I also sprayed on occasion, like after rain…
Would not buy again…
ymmv

Someone should make one with a manual button that you push.

I installed a Tutoro on my R and threaded the tube through the hole in the middle of the swing arm. It took me less than an hour for the whole thing including working out how to fit it.

Will take some photos and attach to this post later.

Had a Scottoiler fitted to my 1190 by the dealer before I picked the bike up.He did a nice neat job.1300 miles so far,so good.Had one on a previous bike from new,a Vstrom 1000,which did 24000 miles on the original chain and sprockets before I swapped the bike.I reckon it would have done at least 30000.

I have a Tutoro in a box at home, waiting with a few other items for the x-mas holidays to get attached. I had a Scotty on my late Varadero for 10 years and never changed the chain kit. But that was a carburetor bike and I didn't want to play around with the KTM hoses so I chose the Tutoro.

Hello All

I am new to the forum and bikes with chains...belts and shafts yes but only a Schwinn with a chain. Waiting on my 1190 (latest is 2nd week of January). My apologies if this should be asked in a new thread but how critical is chain lubrication? Appreciate any input as some friends have told me that they just spray a little WD when the chain starts to look a little rusty and that's it.

Thanks much
AJ

I would estimate a normal lifespan of a chain / Sprocket to roughly 20000 miles/30000 kms. Do little maintenance or none (like your friends) and you may reach half that distance. Do regular cleaning and greasing or use a oiler and you can double it or more. A Chain kit is abt 250$ + workmanship so up to you how often you want to have that added on your service bill.

You could install a BMW shaft. You'll only gain 20-30 pounds, lose HP efficiency to the rear wheel, and replace splines

Hard to see in the pic, but the tube tucks nicely behind the brake and subframe where it can't get hooked.




Next pic is from the lhs where I threaded it through the hole in the swing arm and only used one of the little stick-on things. There is no sign of wear on the tube from vibrations that I can see so far.



Back along the top of the swing arm, again where it is less likely to get hooked by shrubs etc. I took off the chain cover and threaded it under that. It then loops back and the single outlet touches the sprocket on the inside of the lip of the sprocket itself. In this position there is very little flick onto other parts of the bike and none onto the tyre wall either.





The tube / outlet sits nicely under the rear part of the chain guard mount and can slide forwards or backwards easily as the chain is adjusted or sprockets changed. It moves easily also to remove the rear wheel.

I also use castrol chain saw bar oil. It sticks well and doesn't flick. It is also a fraction of the price of branded auto oiler oil in a 4 litre container.
