If you enjoy a clean bike, you don't want to go there. I saw a SP3 at the TAA meet in Detroit with one of these things. The back wheel, subframe and swingarm were covered with a nasty oil and dirt film.

scot oiler

Forget the oiler, stick with a little elbow grease, a grunge brush, some orange cleaner available from your local bicycle shop, some throw away rags, and a can of chain wax. Chain maintanence will make your chain last a long time. Rear stand makes the job easy.

I've talked to guys that really love them, and I've studied the system. It's very well thought out, however, any system that feeds oil onto the drive chain is bound to sling oil all over the place, even when the oil is introduced on the inside of the chain path. I think their key to success is the ‘maintenance free’ notion and the fact that it can dispense the oil in very small amounts. When one considers that most bikers totally ignore their chains or service them with the wrong stuff and in all the wrong ways, the Scottoiler is probably much better than nothing. Most of my customers shake their heads as if they understand my instructions on how to properly care for their chains, then they proceed to just spray chain lube all over the place. So personally I wouldn't install a Scottoiler if one was given to me, but I'd recommend it highly for those that don't maintain their chains anyway.

I keep my chain clean and lubed.I have a stand and yes it is great.I was just looking into this for some input and thank you I think I will pass on it.I used Chain Wax for awhile but now use the clear synthetic from Maxxis.Seems to be cleaner(splattering on my bike).Has anyone tried White Lithium grease yet?I was wondering about what you guys use to clean your chains.I have used CLP (gun cleaner) and WD40 (once,never again).My other bikes are shaft drive.
