Tutoro installation locations and suggestions.
on: January 12, 2018, 08:06:44 AM
I am curious, as to where have you installed the tutoro oiler.   

Here's my set up:



The black tape, is to protect, the wife's shoes  :001:



I had to find , and paint , a piece of metal, to extend the base of the oil container.

It's not pretty, but unfortunately,  our bike doesn't have the same leg passenger , pegs like the NC has. Here's a picture from my friends :



Which lifts the tutoro oil container a bit higher then in ours.

I would like to see any pictures, of your installations !

Mine is in a similar location but central on the passenger footrest bracket. I don't take a pillion on this bike so it was fine to be nearer the peg.

I uploaded a video back in 2015 on the Tutoro. I removed and sold it after a few years use. I then installed a Loobman and have since also removed it. I find that they work intermittently, so have now gone back to the manual oiling method.

I had a Tutoro oiler for almost 4 years on my previous bike and it worked like a charm. Will probably order a new one soon for my new 500X.

 I previously had a Tutoro on my old bike. Decided with the new bike to try a PD oiler with the 500x.
 Ive mounted the oil tank in the front left fairing on the tabs, the oil pipe runs down the frame to the swinging arm and brushes against the chain from there. The control unit is mounted under the seat.
 So far prefer it to the tutoro but for no real reason except my clean setup and the tank is away from muc and grime.

I had a Tutoro but it got gummed up too often, and was too reactive to temperature. Fitted a Cobbra Nemo on this bike and find it much more simple and reliable than the Tutoro.
