    I want to update you re your suggestion that I get a micro vacuum pump for suction to activate the Scottoiler I wanted to fit on my '17 CB-500F. You suggested this several months ago. I got the pump from China for $4 and carefully did the installation, fusing the hot line and activating the pump with a waterproof toggle switch. The system works directly from the battery, is not connected to any ignition-fused wiring. I didn't want the pump working all the time the engine was running as I have no idea how durable these little pumps are. I switch on for about the first 15 minutes of any ride but short ones and this gives the chain adequate lubrication. I set the oil drip rate higher than I would have were the Scottoiler on full time.

    The pump works fine, as does my Scottoiler installation. Since the pumps are so cheap, I bought two more for spares!

    Thank you again for a grand suggestion I never would have conjured!
