Had one before would never had one again.
Its no hassle to clean / lube chain when required and gives you the chance to give the whole bike a once over too.

I have had a scottoiler on my last 4 chain driven bikes. If you calibrate it it does not mess up the rim no more then any other chain lube.
I think its just brilliant. On my STR I have the new simpler electric one that is easy to adjust the flow rate. My son also have and love the scottoiler on his STR.
Cheers!

I had one on both my fazers as I did a lot of miles, including commuting and Europe tours, all year round. It paid for itself after 2 chain and sprockets. However it does need some attention - I found myself riding hairpins in the Pyrenees with oil all over my tyre due partly to the warmer temperature and partly due to my bad setup. They're not a magic bullet. Cost-wise you will never get back the money of the all singing all dancing electronic model - the vacuum model takes maybe 50,000 miles to pay for itself.

I didn't put one on the Street as it's not as easy to hide and I don't do enough miles now to make it worthwhile. I prefer to use gear oil and just be diligent about it. Cleaning the chain is much more of a ball ache if you use "anti fling" chain spray, which converts to a satanic hybrid of glue and grinding paste after a while. Gear oil will fling, but it removes dirt as it does. It's also easier to wipe off the wheel than chain lube.
