Question Chain Oilers?

I don't want to hassle with spray oil cans, so any idea witch chain oiler is easiest and best for new AT? Scottoiler, OSCO, some DIY?

Scottoiler has vSystem - Honda Africa Twin Edition, not sure, what is the edition part, is it colour or something? Price is same than basic v-model.

I had OSCO in my "Lil'10" (XT660Z). Device itself works fine, but I didn't like the mounting parts and original nozzle system was poor. Had to build my own parts, it was too much DIY...

Any other good choices in the market?

There is PDoiler and Prooiler. But PDoiler is much cheaper and electric pump witch I prefer.Prooiler has a gps controled possibility but I think about 280€. PDoiler 86 £.

Scottoiler special edition uses red oil but apparently has bespoke installation options.

Hope this helps. Considering one myself.

Using a Loobman oiler on my NC700X for 3 years to full satisfaction. Have a 2nd one for spare and plan to use it on my AT.

I had a Scottoiler on a previous bike when I lived in the UK. It was ok, but I can't say I ever really got the flow rate right. The thick oil in it also makes for a very dirty looking chain, and seems to attract dirt/dust. So when you do wash your chain, it's annoying.

I think there is a case for them in very wet climates, but in dry and dusty Colorado where I am I think it would be more trouble than it's worth.

Thanks for that, Scottoiler were claiming that it reduces dirt stick which made me suspicious. I think I'll pass and stick with ceramic lubricants.

Found picture of the Loobman chain oiler I installed on my NC700X. Oil hose leads to the rear chain sprocket. Push button operated and little oil flows on the rear sprocket. At the end of the oil hose is a oil delivery head which 'grips' on both sides of the chain sprocket.
Loobman, made in UK, costs some GBP 30. Oil used Stihll Synth Plus, chainsaw lub oil. Simple and works very well. In use for 4 yrs.
