How a motorcycle chain oiler works.

The chain oiler was invented to save time and money, as a motorcyclist you know that one of the most important maintenance jobs you can do on your bikes is to keep your chain and sprocket free for dirt and grit. If not cleaned regularly the chain become clogged with a mixture of grit and dirt mixed with oil, the black paste produces accelerated wear on the chain by getting into the o-rings thus shortening the life of the chain, with the Scottoiler system a small amount of oil is fed onto your motorcycle chain. The unique Scotoil formulation has NON-stick additives which help to keep the chain and sprocket clean. By using Scottoiler chains have up to 7 times longer lifespan and manual cleaning and lubrication is only required every 300 miles.
