Very nice...how you finding chain adjustment/maintenance? Having had 5 BMW's I find it a pita on the Ducati even though the single side cam adjustment makes it easy. :roll:

Fit a Scott Oiler, the E (electronic) version, works a treat.

I have one on my CB1000R which I use as a commuter ands its great, very rarely have to adjust the chain and it keeps it looking clean and shiny, this same oiler has been on three bikes in total now, no problems at all.

Fitted one to my wife's S1RR which didn't work so they sent a replacement before I could take the faulty one off the bike! Very good service. Not the neatest thing to fit on an S1 but worth it :D

Lovely bike btw, had a low frame one for a day and loved it.

Thanks for the pointer; I will get that done when I get back home next month. Looking forward to getting some proper miles done too.

A few of things I learnt about Scott oilers, may help:-

Depending on the bike, can be hard to hide but have managed on the Honda to fit under the rear seat hump, S1RR had to be clamped to the sub frame so clearly visible but easy to fill :)

The reservoir can be placed almost horizontal, top just need to be angled up slightly.

Follow the instructions, important to prime then fit the one way valve.

A very personal opinion but don't bother with the vacuum ones.

Not tried it myself but have heard lots of probs with the double sided nozzles (the bit that oils the chain). Single sided works fine

And last but most important, clean all the grease/ chain lube off the chain first and then manually oil with the Scott oil. Then never use chain lube again. It work by the spinning rear sprocket pushing the oil onto and around the links and rollers, the grease stops this and the oil just fly's off! Ask me how I know :oops:



Cheers
