Scottoiler eSystem......

...just installed new chain and sprockets on my V-Strom 650 and I installed the new Scottoiler eSystem.

It is fantastic.

It is controlled by a computer that has a three-axis accelerometer and it senses when the engine is running, when the bike is moving, and how fast the bike is traveling.

It meters out the oil based upon bike speed and motion.

It drops more all at higher speed, less oil at lower speed, and stops oiling when you come to a stop. You can manually override the flow rate and program the system to match your bike, and your preferences.

It does NOT drip oil on my garage floor.

I've only had it on the bike long enough for one nine hour test ride, but from what I have seen so far, it is an extremely well thought out and engineered system.

I bought the extended reservoir "lube tube" and it appears that I will be able to ride for about 6,000 miles before having to refill this thing.

She's a tad spendy, but the value in ease of use, eliminating time spent lubing, and perfect oiling execution, leads me to believe that this system is worth every penny.

Cheers.
