Hi from Preston, Lancashire
« on: January 06, 2018, 10:39:09 PM »
Hey Everyone,
Bought my MTS950 in October- loving it. I have had to buy the lower seat despite being 5ft8! Had crash bars and R&G front and back axle sliders fitted. Now awaiting heated grips, radiator guard & fender extender. I commute everyday rain or shine but have noticed my chain is suffering- now considering a scott-oiler. In the middle of planning the NC500 or a euro tour.
Bike Obsessed!

Looks good Murf46. Couple of questions....

Which of the 3 versions did you purchase? The standard, deluxe or pro?

Have you got any photos of where you installed the top up bottle, nozzles, etc?

Might also want to consider the Cobrra Nemo 2 oiler  - it's like the Tutoro but more compact . Somebody on the forum said they had converted to it from the Tutoro (sorry can't remember who now) . I fitted it and have to say it is compact , easy to fit (same location as the Tutoro in the photos) and easy to use

....to give credit  - it was thenozzle that made the recommendation  of the Cobrra Nemo. It also seems to be possible to run the feed tube inside the frame to hide it before running it along the bottom of the swingarm
