TUTORO Chain Oiler

Has anyone in OZ tried this product for road use if so how successful was it. I have asked this on another forum and got from brilliant keeps the chain like new, no splatter, easy to adjust to the biggest heap of rubbish ever made coves the bike in lube, cant adjust the flow properly, and so on.
Just it is a pain when traveling to lube a chain with out a centre stand and even if you do it every day it could be 1000Ks with possible rain without a lube but perhaps this is ok with modern chains

Used to use a Scottoiler. Never even hear of a Tutoro?

Had a pro oiler on the 950 since'08. Done about 80k km, no problem, works well.
Does throw oil off into the rim how much deoends on how you have it set. A bir fiddly at first but once you set it up good to use

Had one fitted to my Vstrom for 3 years. Yes it does spaltter oil and yes it is fiddly to get the right drip flow. But for the price im happy with it. Mainly use it on long trips and turn it on near the end of the day to coat the hot chain to soak in overnite

I fitted a Deluxe Tutoro chain oiler system to my F650GS just over a year ago and have been very happy with it - I get very little splatter regardless of whether I'm riding on smooth, sealed roads or rough, unsealed roads (which means I've got the drip rate set right).

Tutoro is an autonomous self-actuation system which negates the need to connect it to any of the motorcycles electrical or vacuum systems - it operates by utilising the normal inertia and motion changes that every motorbike is subject to, so no batteries required either.

Apart from the price the thing I like about the Tutoro system is that it was very quick and easy to install, it doesn't require connections to either electrical or vacuum systems, and it only took one or too small adjustments to get the flow rate right.

Here's a review from August 2014: Tested: Tutoro Chain Oiler reviewed on BMW 650

Had one for a year on my Strom. Very happy with it. As mentioned it takes a little time and fiddling to get the feed rate right but it's not a big deal. No vacuum or electrical connections to worry about and the manufacturer is good to deal with.

Good to know there's an option that works: I have two Scottoilers and hate them both, equally.
What oil do you guys use? I'm reluctant to buy Scott's oil at $30 a litre, and have used chainsaw bar-oil, mostly because it is reasonably sticky, I buy it in 20-litre drums - and Mr Hockey pays for it.

Price depends on what type of system (ie, manual or automatic) and 'edition' you choose ...

Keep the Diggers bar oil for the day you run out of filter oil.

Tutoro specifically state NOT to use either. Don't use 10W40 as it's too light (use 20W50 or heavier, 80W90 gear oil is fine) and especially don't use ATF as it's chemically not compatible with the materials used to make the device and will attack them. ATF is fine in Scottoilers, just not in Tutoro oilers.

Oils ain't oils

No matter what chain oiler you buy, it will probably be the best accessory you have ever fitted. Love my Scottoiler...

"Just fill up the Tutoro reservoir, turn the oiler on at the start of your journey, and off again at the end. Simple!"

No use buying the manual Tutoro version if you have to do that every time ? Think about that for a minute...

Seriously, with limitations like those I'd keep looking.
Yeah, TERRIBLE limitations. AWFUL. Sticking within them meant I had to buy ... nothing. I already had five litres of oil like that sitting in the shed doing nothing.
