the_sad_punk, that makes sense, yep.

However reason I want that UK kit - it gives about 2000 km between adding oil and very precise, it is positive displacement pump (e.g. it works even pushing oil up) and it is easy to adjust (frequency of pump pushing oil portions). There is no priming, no drip of oil after, no switching on or off...kinda thing you put in and forget about. I am becoming older and lazier I mean - for 57 quid I would buy it without hesitation.
God forbid to spend huge money on "advanced" oilers. BTW I found one "achilles heel" of all ready-made oilers. You probably saw in this tread my post about nozzle itself?
Here is the deal. When oil dispersed on rear sprocket it works well, but a)more chances it flying around b)when you get in some offroad it can easy get ripped off (happened to me) c)system are very good in mixing dust etc. with lube.
So, I stole idea from one of our colleagues (Ladder106 if I remember right) about how to make double nozzle and then made some small piece, allowing for reliable and easy removable setup under front sprocket cover.
Here is what I ended up with. I hope it can be of use for someone...

I made an oiler for about $8.00 US. It uses a plastic Kechup bottlle, tubing, and drip irrigation valves. I put old carb jets in the line until I got the flow I wanted (somewhat weather dependent).

I'm hugely embarrassed by the way it looks (its under the side panel on the AfricaAlp) but not by the way it works. The bottle is cood for about 1500 miles. Stihl or Husky chainsaw bar oil seems to work best.

Photos if you can stand them.

I fitted a Scottoiler to Daisy when I bought her. I got 30000 Km out of the first chain. Work for me.

Very good service from Greg the Wilbers importer in ozz, a new seal head I think it was has been replaced,
Fellow ADV rider called Doc put a bit of footage up for me , he didn,t edit the last bit .
If you watch the footage about 300m past the little bridge I hit some pot holes,I think that may have been the the starting point to the leaking .

Today's Dakar stage, starring Robmoto!!!
Well done, although Iris and me sometimes were a bit worried about you and the Big. Must be the first time, that a platypus was on the hunt after 'roos. There have been some rather nice wheelies during the ride!
Were had you put the camera? We're discussing helmet or shoulder ...
Kind regards, Iris and Bambi

Bambi and Iris, our biggest danger down here is roos , luckily I saw those small ones when aproching the corner and had some fun with them at least they were tiny and not 2 metre big fellas .
This was the first day I used the motion pro camers and read up on the ozzy ADV site where some people say it is best to mount on the right hand side of the helmet so that is where I put it.
It came with a suction mount allso but I haven,t tried it on there yet, you can see the mount on the BIG wind screen.

Well Rob, you show no fear I probably wouldnt cycle that opening stretch of road (first 2 mins) let alone (be able or willing to) ride it! It looks like it was crumbling and eroding in places. It kind of reminded me like this lad who also has balls like yours haha

Like the vid mucho and demand more.

The suspension is looking great there btw, i can see why your happy! Doing some job of letting you just get on with it.
Btw, a humble suggestion if i may, consider flipping the bar throttle cable housing 180 degrees. I did this and the slack doesnt sit up blocking clocks or the like. It rund underneath and doesnt snag or do anything untoward and looks neater imo.
