BMW Motorrad is announcing a new accessory automatic drive chain lubrication system in cooperation with Scottoiler for F800R, F800GS, F800GS Adventure, F700GS, and F650GS2 models.
How it works:
-Automatic chain lubrication is controlled by vacuum produced when the engine is running. The vacuum lifts the diaphragm, which opens a valve enabling oil to flow under the force of gravity through a delivery hose and drip on to the chain over the rear sprocket.
-Both sides of the chain are lubricated: centrifugal force causes the oil to spread over the sprocket to the inside links of the chain. Some of the oil is distributed over the O-rings, the rest makes its way into the rollers and the capillary effect spreads it to the other side of the chain.
-The flow rate (drip rate) can be adjusted at the valve. The maximum flow rate is limited.
-The constant lubrication significantly reduces friction in the chain drive, helping to minimize wear and power loss.
-With the delivery the rate correctly adjusted, one fill of the oil reservoir (50 ml) is sufficient for riding a distance of approximately 1,500 miles (2500 km).
-No separate switching on and off needed: the system operates automatically only when the engine is running.
-The design of the system ensures no effect on the engine's operating characteristics.
-Maintains the capability of the chain, keeps it clean, quiet and smooth-running.
-No need for manual lubrication or cleaning of the chain and the tension does not have to be adjusted as often because its wearing less.
-The chain and the sprockets last much longer. The savings on the first replacement chain-set help off-set the cost of the system.
-Oil reservoir with valve.
-Nozzle (drips the oil on to the chain and the sprocket).
-Hose for vacuum and oil feed.
-Operating instructions. (for insertion into the Rider's Manual).
-Scottoil Standard or Super (choose below). Standard recommended for 32-86F temps, Super for 68-104F temps.
Dealer install recommended.
