TUTORO Ltd is a small British company dedicated to producing precision devices for lubricating your motorcycle chain.
A Potted History..
The TUTORO Chain Oiler started life as an idea by Nick Ibbitson in 2007 - the result of which was the TUTORO Manual oiler. TUTORO is an acronym which means Top Up, Turn On, Ride Off.
The TUTORO Manual won the prestigious Ride Magazine BEST BUY award for Chain Oilers in May 2010 and again in 2011.
Inspired by the success of the Manual Oiler we started research into an automatic type oiler with a major difference .."Autonomous operation" with no reliance on or connection to the motorcycles electrical or vacuum induction systems (unlike all the other automatic oilers on the market).
The reason for taking this new direction is that motorcycles are not the simple "engine in a frame with a wheel at each end" machines that they used to (appear to) be.
Modern motorcycles are sophisticated vehicles that, like cars, have sophisticated engine management systems (ECU's) which control and monitor a whole host of subsidiary sensors and inputs - everything from the air induction temperature to the suspension settings.
Due to the incredibly intricate and wide ranging monitoring capabilities of the modern ECU's any unexpected change to the eco system its managing can be detected and flagged as a fault - potentially leading to a shutdown or degradation of performance in order to protect the machine.
After market devices that insinuate themselves into the closed eco-system of the modern motorcycle therefore run the risk of disturbing or damaging these systems, causing ECU faults, parasitic battery drain and in some cases, voiding the manufacturers warranty simply by installing them.
For these reasons in late 2011 the TUTORO Auto first saw the light of day.
Since then the Tutoro Auto has evolved to become the worlds most popular and effective autonomous motorcycle chain oiler.
The company has grown organically from very humble beginnings and although the original garage workshop space has long since been replaced with a 2400sq. foot industrial unit in Lydney Gloucestershire, the same ethic of producing high quality hand made motorcycle oilers and making them available direct to our customers prevails.
Our oilers are popular all over the world and are regularly despatched to every continent (with the exception of Antarctica - although that maybe due to the lack off motorcycle Tea stops).
TUTORO Ltd has no corporate backers, no bank loans and no debts and is run and operated by the husband and wife team of Nick and Jude Ibbitson plus a guard Spaniel.
Do one thing, do it well...
We're not trying to match the volume output of mass produced products from larger firms.
Just high quality British made motorcycle Chain oilers.
Use the best quality materials. Precision engineer those materials into high tolerance components, then meticulously assemble them into beautiful, accurate devices for automatically lubricating motorcycle chains.
