J-pip, the plate mount is actually a $3 part called an "inspection sticker plate". I got mine from Dennis Kirk, I only had to drill two holes in the plate. There are no new holes in the bike at all, it is bolted on at the two bolts farthest forward in the pointed mud guard. It literally only cost $3, weighs grams, and I have like 4 spares. Want one? Anybody?

Limey, that is our donkey that thinks he is a guard lion. He's crazy, and wanted to be painted blue...

Huff, it was a turkey that I hit in my ROOMMATES car, that sucker tried to pack its whole body into the left headlight! Look for the thread: Damn Turkey!!! in off topic.

harvee, Yeah I assumed when I bought the scottoiler that the oil would be gold in color, but it is green. It is my Ninja Turtle ooze, and it actually is kind of a cool color IMO. The oiler is easy enough to fit. It uses the engine vacuum to open a valve when the engine is running, rather than being electrical. You don't have to mess with any of the existing vacuum hoses on the bike, there is a vacuum port on the middle throttle body that just has a rubber cap on it, and the elbow in the kit fits it nice & snug. I spent more time trying to find a more hidden spot to mount it, but where I put it really is the best option without drilling holes in the frame. It is one of the neatest little gadjets I have ever seen on a bike, and works very well. I recommend getting the optional dual injector, for too many reasons to list here. I spent about $200 bucks all together, and it is money well spent. All you do is keep the reservoir topped up, and never think about it otherwise. It keeps the chain perfectly lubed, all the time. And... NO FLING!!!

Forgot to mention, the triumph tune for the full Arrow system runs MUCH better than the TORS tune with the Zard slip-on. FWIW.

Nice Scott Oiler! I thought about it once but did not bite. I take pretty good care of my chain on my own. I am writing to say that last week I could hear a small tick or knock sound which the frequency of the knock was commensurate with the rpm of the front and rear wheels. It had nothing to do with the engine.

I could not figure it out but anyway I adjusted my chain and lubed it. I also removed the front sprocket cover and cleaned all the gunk out of it. The noise persisted. I was perplexed and then I noticed that my rear sprocket was kind of gunked up. I cleaned the rear sprocket and did some slow figure 8's in the driveway and much to my delight, the noise was gone.

I only bring this up because as I was looking at your chain I could see the gunk and rust built up on the outside of the link plates. Should you have the same symptoms I wrote about above and your sprocket does not look clean, maybe this post will help.

Very nice looking bike!

I just haven't had the chance to clean it yet. Been riding, and being lazy... It got rusty while it was in for crash repairs, and I have just got it back on the road after being seperated for 10 months! It actually isn't as bad as it looks, it moves very freely. I will clean it soon I promise...
