Re: Enclosed rear chain

I fitted my CB500 with an automatic Tutoro chain oiler & replaced the O-ring chain with a standard chain of top quality from Andy The Chain Man. The tutoro meters the oil via a fully adjustable jiggle valve in the reservoir - 20 mins to fit on the bike & 10 seconds to refill & doubled or trebled chain life and allowed two chains per set of sprockets.
My Hinckley came with a plumbed in Scottoiler & what a pain it is by comparison. Sometimes it works, somtimes it doesn't and sometimes it floods the rear tyre. It seems obvious to me that the metering settings between the vacuum connection and the mechanical valve just don't work across all running conditions.
I've gone back to chain wax.
Thank you for your support...
