I mounted one on my GFs 2011 BMW G650GS. I took about an hour doing it.....but 45 mins was eyeballing the machine and working out my plan.

I dont have a picture....but I can snap one and upload it if you wanna see it.

Seems to work well......only downside Ive seen so far is caused by user error.

I overfilled the reservoir......so now the vbration of the machine causes oil to seep out the plunger at the top.....all down the engine case - oh well......this machine has never been clean.

Seems to oil well.....simple design.

Im using "left over" clean oil. When I do an oil change in my cars, motorcycles, ATVs I always have a little dribble in the bottom of the quart or gallon jub. I drain all these "leavings" in a gallon jug.........and I use it as general lube for drill bits.....cutting......bolts......etc - Im also using that to fill the Loobman.
