Tutoro chain oiler

Has anyone put a Tutoro automatic chain oiler on their AT? If so,where did you mount it? I am struggling to find a suitable place on the bike.

I now have 9000 miles using the Tutoro. Great product I could recommend to anyone. The oil being used is 70/90 rear end oil that you can purchase as any Walmart. Ran tubing throw the swing arm by drilling small holes in the two rubber grummits. This works perfect, and protects the line at all times. Oil feed to rear sprocket came out at a perfect 7 o'clock. Pictures attached.

I mounted mine in a tapped hole behind the left passenger peg.

Look close, you will find it. I went crazy finding a to mount the oiler! Pre drilled from the factory!

Good luck

Thanks for the information about the mounting of the Tutoro I Shift.I have used that predrilled hole you mentioned,but am now wondering whether the chainguard might catch it on full bump.I will have to keep an eye on it.

It hangs in the breeze alright! I never considered any problem with interference, so far so good with mine after 1100 street miles. Good luck with yours,.... what kind of oil do you use in hot weather?

Have a look at where I fitted my Loobman in the product review I posted yesterday. I previously had a Tuturo on my Integra and the reservoir is slightly more compact that the Loobman so would easily cable tie to the angled frame where I put the Loobman. You would just need to make a small triangular wedge to make it sit more vertical. I struggled with the Tuturo as I found it too fussy over temperature. I was forever diddling with the flow rate as it was either too much or not enough.
