About the same price as scottoiler, slightly cheaper for the basic version. They're marketing it as a low volume hand crafted heirloom you can pass on to your grandkids.

I had one, couldn't fault it. The advantage vs the scottoiler is that I don't think it can really break and has no electronics. The disadvantage is that you need to manually set up the rate, and that flow is dependant vs temperature.

They both will be annoying as fuck from time to time.

Had one - shite. Customer service shite also. Presently use a Loobman but might change to Nemo 2.

So far though best to worst operationally:
Pro-oiler
Loobman
Scotoiler
Tucano

Default Re: oiled up

I have one on the Vstrom & it works fine.....simple to fit, a bit fiddly to adjust & it depends on how bumpy a road you're on i.e. more bumps = more oil delivery
Temperature also affects it but no more so than a Scottoiler
Whatever you do DO NOT get the twin feed nozzle as its pure shite(plastic) & the inside nozzle disappeared on the first spin....after that I used it as single feed only & works fine ever since.
Basically you get what you pay for Scottoiler is dearer but all oilers are messy fuckers...only solution to that is shaft drive bike.
Loobman is very basic & depends on you pushing a button manually every time you need a squirt of oil
Just my 2 cents

Thanks! Hadn't heard of Pro-oiler or Loobman.

Will give Loobman a shot, wanted something cheap and simple, I can't be trusted to actually oil the chain myself, anything that avoids that is a winner :)

Scotoiler is the way to go IMHO, only a tad more expensive at the beginning but it's a well established brand and I done thousands of miles with mine without any problems.

Had a loobman before and found it utter shite. If they spent a fiver more on making it it'd be grand.

Default Re: oiled up

had a couple scottoilers, great yoke imo, need to keep an eye on them as they can get clogged up sometimes if the bike is left idle for a bit, also can be messy fookers but by fuck does it mind yer chain, rarely needs adjusting and lasts for yonks, well worth fitting especially on a yoke thats used a lot in all weathers.

It's not a big deal to oil a chain every couple of weeks / few hundred miles, oilers either spray too little (and get washed away with rain if you're an all-weather biker) or too much oil that gets splattered all over your back wheel and tyre sidewall.

WD40 (or its equivalent) spray-on wax is a much better option in this weather, it stays on the chain for ages with zero fling off even up to 2000 rpm ;
