      This must be the one of the best items ever produced for a motorcycle (unless you have a shaft or belt driven bike of course). A Scottoiler is a small chamber (5 inches long) that connects into the vacuum between the carburettor and engine, when the engine is running slowly drips chain oil onto your chain. Fitting a Scottoiler can give you an increase in chain life of up to 7 times the norm, It's supplied as a universal kit that fits most bikes, including fuel injected models and does not affect engine performance, It is high quality, tried and tested design developed over 20 years. I have had a Scottoiler on my last 4 bikes, and is the first item I buy when I get a new bike. (You can remove the Scottoiler and refit it when you change bikes) The standard chamber holds enough oil for about 400 miles (depending on the flow rate) if that isn't enough for you, Scottoiler produce a high capacity add-on that fits behind the number plate and hold's about 1000-1500 miles worth of oil. On our recent trip around Europe, only one person in the group didn't have one fitted, and he spent 10 - 20 minutes at the end of every day, oiling and adjusting his chain, and by the end of the trip (3000 miles later) his chain was so stretched it needed to be replaced once back in the UK. If you could only buy one thing for your bike, this is it - Honest! No more messy chain lube, messing about with paddock stands or getting your mate to hold the bike. A few dealers that we have spoken to have said "Oh you can not fit a Scottoiler to that bike, it's got fuel injection", but this is not so, you can fit one to 595's, 955's, VFR800i's etc. Just contact Scottoiler or visit there web site, and they list a wide range of fitting instructions. Long Term Thoughts: May 2002 I've had my current Scottoiler now for over 2 and 1/ 2 years and I'm as happy with it as the day it
      was first fitted. I've done over 16K miles on the Triumph and the chain has only required adjusting half a dozen times all due to the Scottoiler keeping the chain correctly lubricated.
