    Ill have a look hussy, but seem to reme'mber that it was actually dearer, I did buy 4 litres last time.
    Centre stand (but not a $500.00 one ) would make life easier.

    Scott Oiler pays for itself in a few thousand kms in oil alone. Add to that the reduction in hassle. It's almost fit-n-forget. Outstanding customer service too.

    I'm not on commission, just a happy customer for, oooh, 30 years now.

    3 decades without squeaky Scots!

    Ah well, that experiment is over. The chain got dirty and noisier than usual after a ride on some damp back roads.

    I've given the chain a good clean and will go back to the Du Pont stuff for everyday use. I have some Castrol spray lube if there is surface rust after riding on wet roads.

    I'll second that motion.

    Seems a tad wasteful
