1- How do use the helmet lock???! If its just a case of putting the strap through it aint some little tea leaf gonna cut the strap and pinch my precious lid?!
Not sure how cutting the strap on a lid helps, other than allowing you to drive away with an unsecured helmet and not getting a pull for having no lid.The best chain lubes are high-fling, high-maintenance. Low fling will catch the road dirt and turn it into a grinding pasted. Depends on how often you want to clean the bike as to which you'll choose.The day your scottoiler vomits on your back tyre will be the day you regret having one fitted.

Had one fitted on various bike over the last 7 years-when should I expect this to happen??
The bike I bought late last year had a scottoiler (never had one before) and it didn't seem to be putting any oil on the chain so I experimented with the feed setting and on local riding/going to work etc it seemed ok, just enough to lube the chain a bit.Then I had a long journey to do which included about 50 miles of motorway (which for me is fast lane at about 100mph). Stopped for a break after the m-way bit and the entire back of the bike was dripping in oil, all over one half of the tyre as well. My fault undoubtedly but I can't seem to get the feed right, hence my 'fiddly as fuck' comment.
The adjustment range on the top of the SMV is quite small,only the last part makes any difference. It's easy to go from two drips per minute to far too much
