Installed mine today. Bit fiddly getting the dispenser in exactly the right place but it seems to work.

Dispenser looks vulnerable but it's in the correct position as per instructions. Time will tell.

Hugger doesn't get in the way. Dispenser button is easy to reach when on bike. I had a load of 15-40 mineral oil in the garage so I used that. Oil only takes a minute or 2 to dispense. Chain gets well lubed on the rollers and the sprocket teeth are nice and wet. Don't know if it will wick round to the o-rings or side plates - will have to keep an eye on these in the winter.

Also took the opportunity to install new Beowulf can.

GSX is now 4kg lighter and sounds more like a bike and less like a Nissan Micra.:D

Tomorrow's job is to reset suspension to normal settings, PO had it set with rock solid preload which probably didn't help my confidence on the wee dales roads last w/e.


Anyone else got any installation tales?

Just fitted mine Al.

I put a dribble feed just behimd the front sprocket.

Then mounted the reservoir somewhere handy.....

Filled with some random old engine oil and pressed the button. Lo & behold , within seconds oil was pi55ing all over the garage floor :D

I'm sure it'll work a treat :thumbup:

Cheers for sorting the group buy, Phil

Fitted mine today, sorry no pics (totally incompetent) fitted the res to the chain guard, may have the feed a bit close to the sproket compared to the first ppics though, it seems to feed onto the sroket so will get to the chain "I hope".
Thanks again for sorting these.:thumbright:

So far I'm thoroughly impressed with the Loobman (why does it remind me of Boobman :) )

They are simple and effective with decent capacity :thumbup:

I'm moving away from Scottoiler's & getting another couple of Loobmans.

Details are in Tendays first post of this thread.
Post up if you definately want one.
I can hand them out at the Christmas meet at Jellies.
