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.

 

 

Step 2 - Find a place for the reservoir

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 behind the number plate. 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 dispenser on your rear sprocket

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 - 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.
