 Product Compatibility

  • vSystem + Adapter SA-0095BL
  • eSystem
  • Lube Tube
  • Dual Injector
  • Magnum HCR

 
Please Note

The HCR (High Capacity Reservoir) is not compatible with this model. If you are looking to increase the reservoir capacity we recommend the Lube Tube flexible reservoir instead.

vSystem Installation

Adapter Required

This installation requires a Universal Spigot (SA-0095BL) available from Scottoiler.

 

Step 1 - Find a vacuum source 

Locate the vacuum – Remove the rubber inlet manifold, and drill a 3mm hole in one side. Then fit the Universal Spigot, available  from Scottoiler, using washers and an RTV, silicon type sealant, to ensure an airtight seal. Re-install the manifold and then press the Damper Elbow onto the spigot. Caution: Remove any drilling swarf / loose material from the manifold before re-installation. For further information see our easy step installation guide - Vacuum Connections General.

 

 

 

 
 
 
Alternatively the throttle body can be drilled to accept the M5 spigot. 
 

Locate the vacuum – Remove the inlet manifold and drill a 4mm hole in one side. Tap the hole using an M5 tap and fit the M5 Spigot, using an RTV silicon type sealant to ensure an airtight seal. Re-install the manifold and then press the Damper Elbow onto the spigot. Caution: Remove any drilling Swarf / loose material from the manifold before re-installation! For further information see our easy step installation guide - Classics, Singles and Two Strokes

 

Drill 13mm from the edge of the casting.  

 

 
 

Step 2 - Find a place 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 to maximise the available range.

 

 

Step 3 - Mount the dispenser and connect the system

The Dispenser assembly can be secured on the chain guard bolt using the small dispenser plate and clip. The delivery tubing can be routed along the swing arm using self -adhesive cable clips. See our easy step installation guide  Dispenser Positioning. The nib should lightly  touch the face of the rear sprocket , with the slash cut 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 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 rear sprocket and then install the check valve. Do not install the check valve until the delivery tubing is full.

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.
