How to fill and prime my eSystem?
The eSystem is easily filled in just a few steps.
How often you need to refill really depends on the system you are using and the flowrate setting your system is set at. As a rule of thumb you’re looking at somewhere around 800-1200 miles. Using the Magnum HCR (High Capacity Reservoir) or the Traveller Expansion Bag can increase your reservoir capacity further still.
Priming the eSystem is only necessary the first time you install the system or when you "ran the system dry", i.e. when you did not refill the reservoir in time and there is air in the clear delivery tube. Priming pushes the oil all the way through the delivery line and prepares the system for use.
Always make sure to remove the breather and filler plug. This will open up the filler hole and make filling the reservoir a lot easier. Get your bottle of Scottoil and the filler spout ready. Connect the filler spout to the bottle and fill the Scottoil into the reservoir through the filler hole. After you filled the reservoir make sure to replace the filler plug, making sure the plug sits tight.
