Scottoiler E System - Digital Display
Customer Product Reviews
Great product at the best price in Europe
Excellent system to forget oiling your chain. It's easy to install and to setup. All you need for installing is included in the package and you can watch videos on YouTube about how to install it properly. Shipping was fast, so very happy with my purchase.
Scottoiler E System, just works!
The system was installed on a Suzuki V-Strom 1000. Good bike specific info on the Scottoiler website, which indicated using one of the bobin mounts to install the quill and to route the feed tube up the inside of the swinging arm (which takes some patience and a sense of humour!, at one point I thought I was doing a remake of a Laurel & Hardy comedy!!). All of this effort makes for a very professional looking install. Priming the system took more cycles than I was expecting, but that seems to be normal. They do say, if all else fails, read the manual! Out on the road it didn't seem to be oiling the chain. Reference to the manual revealed that the flow-rate has a default setting to OFF!. Once set to the recommended setting of 60 (one drop in 60 seconds), all seemed to be good. Although you have a handlebar mounted control, it pretty much operates itself, detects when the bike is started and starts to move, etc. You should see a flashing LED to show it is pumping, I didn't, so the need to investigate. Looks like a very good investment, especially if you go touring and don't want to carry a can of lube around. Very prompt delivery from Sportsbikeshop, as usual.
So far, so good...
Easy to fit... well it took me a little longer than the estimated hour, but I am about as technically minded as a cat. But, I did fit it and so far it is working well - thank the gods of the road, because I hate having to constantly oil my chain! Thanks SBS for another bargain.
I have had the vSystem on a couple of bikes and wanted to upgrade for my latest one (I wasn't good at keeping the old ones topped up) so have treated it to the eSystem and Sportsbikeshop were great on price and quick on delivery. As another reviewer has said took me about an hour to fit, the instructions in the box were clear and bike specific instructions are available on the Scottoiler website. So far everything is working perfectly my chain is staying nicely lubricated and if my experience with the vSystem is of any use then I know I will save a fortune on new chains.
