The Benelli is blessed (?) with a duplex
rear drive chain, a design idea of some 40 years ago and believed to be the
answer to chain stretch from this would be Superbike. They are now a rare
commodity and unique to Benelli so Alan wanted to preserve it and fitted
Scottoiler to lubricate and extend the chain's life.
The Scottoiler operates by vacuum
control from the induction manifold, only releasing a tiny amount of
chain lubricant when the engine is running. Strapped by chrome tie-wraps
on to the rear diagonal down tube.
Topping up the container once every
800 miles or so is all that is needed. Note the now painted black
watertight ignition box.
