    Anyone mounted one of these on their 2020 XR Gen 2 - especially the location of the oil output on the rear sprocket - pictures???

    This would be helpful to all here.

    I had a look online for swingarm photos, and I see your issue.

    I see two holes in the end of the swingarm above and below the slide - are they threaded to allow you to use the lower one to fit the dropper bracket?

    It looks like the other option might be a custom bracket bolted into the forward threaded hole of the adjuster screw.  That would take a fairly long bracket to position the dropper in the right location for the sprocket/chain.

    Of all the Mk2 XRs sold (possibly a lot less than Mk1) - there may not be a lot with a scottoiler fitted?

    Slightly off topic, but on my gen 2 it had the m chain and its been impressive, 6000 miles and one adjustment and only oiled twice and never cleaned. I would not go back to any bike with a “normal” chain

    Just looked that up, £235 for a chain!! Eek, do you really think its worth it?
    That buys a gold X ring chain, sprockets and a £90 bucket o lube!
    Does seem a pretty brilliant chain though.
    I was going to go scottoiler but you have got me thinking now???   :084: :084:   :138: :001:

    I have my own "home made" electronic oiler system feeding a DID ZVMX chain.....the chain and sprockets have done just shy of 40k km ....and they're still in good condition. I fitted the system in 2017 not long after I bought my Gen-1.

    There's no reason a decent chain & sprockets shouldn't last well if looked after....my rear sprocket is aluminium too.
