ConsSlightly fiddly
ProsEverything you need but the allen key.
This is the third time I have carried out an oil change on my Rohloff. If it was not simple I would not have bought the kit again. Everything you need except an allen key including easy instructions. The only fiddly bit is not a fault of the kit but having spokes fitted to the Rohloff which makes getting your fingers in to turn an allen key a little slow. Otherwise brilliant!

Just completed first oil change on new Rohloff hub and all went well except was initially a little worried because the drain screw was difficult to undo and for a moment I thought I might round the hex. However I persevered and it eventually gave way. Phew!!
I decided not to reuse drain screw because a new screw with preapplied thread sealant is significantly cheaper than the cost of sealant to apply to the old screw. (Loctite 511, the thread sealant recommended by Thorn and Rohloff, is about £20/£25 for 50ml which would buy you about a dozen new drain screws). So I would say use the old screw without sealant but always have a new screw to hand in the event of leaks. Incidentally as I understand it, threadlock is not the same as thread sealant so beware what you are using.
(Mostly) Easy To Do, & You Need To Buy That Syringe At Least Once

Other than an allen key you dont need anything else. The process is easy. Dont let the old one fall down a hole!

Make sure you keep that syringe in case you decide to buy the big container of cleaner and lubricant later on.

ConsDrain plud nd hole incredibly small
ProsSimple to use
Great product. I have a Nomad and a Raven tandem. The first year the nomad went to the bike shop but then i saw the video. Even a mechanical duffer like me can follow the video and instructions, especially if teenage engineer son oversees the job! Take it slow and steady and you too can do an oil change. Beats a trip to the bike shop any day. I would recommend a warm sunny day rather than a windy October afternoon though. Both the oil and the blood runs freer
Good For Alfine 11

as previous reviewer says, this fits the Alfine 11 and is a lot cheaper than the shimano version. You need to get the instructions pdf from Shimano website. I didn't bother refitting the O ring whilst changing oil and was fine.

ProsClear and strightforward
Good clear instructions, used in conjunction with video linked from SJS website. All very straightforward, I followed instructions exactly, Blog helped as it states often Rohloff do not put in 25ml of oil, so I was not so worried when I could not get 50cl of oil and oil cleaner out.

The adapter also fits the Shimano Alfine 11, I've used it with Shimano's SG700 oil to do an oil change on my Alfine.

ConsThe suggested use of superglue is stupid
ProsA relatively easy DIY job
The kit arrived promptly with easy to understand instructions and all went well until the suggested method of fixing the plastic tube to the syringe proved to be totally ineffective. Superglue definitely doesn't bond the types of plastic from which both items are made [ tubes containing superglue are even made of almost identical material because they're not affected by the glue ] and the joint gave way when the mix of old and flushing oil was being drained and much valuable time had to be spent cleaning up the mess that ensued.

ConsThe gear set is great but the oil change system is not the best thought out
ProsWorks just about - assume the new oil is fine
Works OK but is a fiddly job. Not easy to coax the old oil and cleaning oil out of the gear assembly due to the small size of the drain hole which makes it difficult to get air back in. The syringe doesn't work well because there is no way to relieve the pressure in the hub by allowing air out as the oill goes in. Would perhaps work better of the gear assembly had both a drain hole and an air bleed hole on opposite sides of the hub. Superglue suggestion for the tube does not work at all.

ConsA little expensive
ProsGood quality oil
Easy to do. I just bought a secondhand Raven Tour and glad I changed the oil the old oil was very dirty! Took half an hour, good instructions on the Thorn website. Reused grub screw without a problem. Bike running better now.

ConsThink, recycling, kit, plastic, components
ProsIt, works,
Kit arrived promptly as is usual for SJS Cycles. I didn't pick up on the Loctite routine but as this was the 5th oil change I simply used common sense. Now that I have 5 sets of bits and pieces I would prefer to purchase on the Cleaning fluid and the Oil. On the other hand, is it unreasonable to pay £20 pa for maintenance of such an expensive but reliable gear set? The annual maintenance costs of my old derailleur gear set was far higher and nowhere near as reliable. Don't forget, a Rohloff is for life.
Does What It Needs To Do

I recommend this product
Has everything required for an oil change. Considerately the rinsing fluid bottle is large enough to handle the waste oil for disposal. However the recommendation to superglue the filling tube to the syringe didn't work for me as it didn't "hold" and the superglue hardened the tube a bit preventing a natural seal.

Can't say that it's an object of desire, but having bought the kit once, larger bottles of the rinsing and gear oils are available, so worthwhile for the longer term.

ConsNo alternatives to maintain guarantee
ProsDoes the job
Kit arrived promptly but unable to source Lochtite 511 locally and not part of the kit. Further advice confirmed it was not needed if using the new Grub Screw as it already had it on (only needed if replacing the used grub screw). But the instructions need to be updated to make this clear to first time users.
