vSystem Installation


Step 1 - Find a vacuum source 


Locate the vacuum – There is a rubber cap over a spigot on the inlet tract.  Remove this cap and then press the Damper Elbow, onto the spigot. For further information see our easy step installation guide - Vacuum Connections General.

MT09 FZ09 (2014 - ) damper elbow on spigot Remove the rubber cap and replace it with the vacuum damper elbow part.

Hint: fit the vacuum tubing to the small end of the vacuum damper elbow first.


Step 2 - Find a place for the reservoir 


The reservoir can be mounted on the frame or under the seat. The more vertical the reservoir is mounted the better. Avoid positioning the reservoir completely horizontally, as this will limit the available range. Remember to avoid exhaust and engine components. For further information, see our easy step installation guide – Reservoir Positions.

Step 3 - Mount the dispenser and connect the system 


The Dispenser Assembly can be secured to the paddock stand bobbin mount using the small Dispenser Plate & Clip. The delivery tubing can be routed along the swing arm using self- adhesive cable clips. For further information see our easy step installation guide - Dispenser Positioning. The nib should feed the rear sprocket with the cut face facing outwards.

Step 4 - Fill, prime and set up your vSystem


Once fitted, fill and prime the system and set the adjuster knob to ’prime’. Start the engine and turn the adjuster knob until a flow of between 1 and 2 drops per minute is achieved. Check the condition of your chain after a ride, and then adjust as required.  

For best results clean your chain before fitting the Scottoiler using paraffin or similar. Then lightly oil the chain from the bottle using a rag or a brush, this allows the oil from the Scottoiler to reach both sides of the chain. 1 to 2 drops per minute will maintain this film of oil on the chain.

eSystem Installation


Step 1 - Find a place for the display


The Display Bracket (Part 5) can be rotated through 360° to give 4 mounting options and can also be flipped to provide 4 further options. The bracket can be secured to any M5/M6 bolt e.g. brake or clutch lever, brake cylinder or fairing mountings, in some cases you might need to trim the supplied bolt. It is possible to bend the bracket to shape, do so before fitting the Display Unit, part 1, to prevent damage to the unit. Alternatively, the sticky fasteners (Part 4) can be used to securely fasten the Display Unit to any flat surface e.g. the fork yokes.

Step 2 - Find a space for the reservoir


The reservoir can be mounted under the seat or on a frame spar. Ensure that the top of the reservoir is at least slightly raised (ideally above 15° from horizontal) to maximise the available range.

Step 3 - Mount dispenser on your rear sprocket


Make sure that the Injector lightly touches the face of the sprocket. Use spindle mounts, bobbin mounts or chain guards to install the dispenser assembly. 


After you are happy with the placement of both the reservoir and the dispenser secure all parts before starting with the routing of the oil delivery tube. Take your time to find the best and most secure routing, avoiding hot engine and exhaust parts and taking suspension movement into account.

Step 4 - Connect system to your battery


The eSystem must be wired directly to the battery. Attach the red wire to the +ve terminal and attach the black wire to the -ve terminal.

Step 5 - Fill, prime, and set up your new eSystem



Once fitted, fill the REP and prime the pump. Attach the delivery tubing and prime until the oil reaches the point where you want to install the check valve. Stop the priming process and cut and insert the check valve at the chosen position. Continue priming the system until oil reaches the sprocket.

For further information you can also watch our installation video that shows the setup steps. How to fill and prime my eSystem?

Set the flow rate, using the ’Driving Screen’ on the Display Unit, to 60-70 seconds per drop (s/dp), check the condition of your chain after a ride, and adjust as required.
