Space issue!

Due to limited space on this model, we have not been able to install our vSystem or eSystem reservoirs. We recommend our Sport Edition vSystem - with a smaller reservoir (approximately 500 mile/800km range). 

If you have you’ve managed to find a neat and accessible location for our vSystem or eSystem reservoir on this model, please help others by contacting us at technical@scottoiler.com 





vSystem Installation

Step 1 - Find a vacuum source 

Locate the vacuum – There is a rubber cap over a spigot on the throttle body. Remove one of these caps and then press the Damper Elbow onto the spigot. For further information see our easy step installation guide - Vacuum Connections General.




 2017 onwards (Euro4 models with EVAP)
Step1. Find a vacuum source.

There is a vacuum pipe from the inlet tract on the cylinder head to the EVAP purge valve. You can read more about the EVAP System and how to identify the correct vacuum pipe here. Cut this pipe and insert the 4mm Tee connector, and push the vacuum damper elbow onto the third leg of the tee.



Step 2 - Find a place for the reservoir 



The reservoir can be mounted 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.
