VFR800F - (2014-2016)
- vSystem + Adapter SA-0098BL
- Sport Edition vSystem + Adapter SA-0098BL
- eSystem + Adapter SA-0098BL
- Lube Tube
- Dual injector
- Magnum HCR
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.
Step 1 - Find a vacuum source
There is a vacuum pipe from the throttle bodies leading to a check valve. Cut this pipe and insert the 4mm Tee connector and push the vacuum damper onto the third leg of the tee.
Note: Looking from the right side of the bike.
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 chain guard bolt using a small dispenser plate & clip. The delivery tubing can be routed along the brake line. For further information see our easy step installation guide - Dispenser Positioning. The nib should feed the rear sprocket, with the cut face outwards.
Note: Adapter SA-0098BL shown.
Ensure tip of injector is accurately positioned at the base of sprocket teeth, avoiding the chain, and nuts - with the slash cut facing outwards.
Route delivery tubing with brake line.
Step 4 - Fill, prime, and set up your new 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.
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.
Note: vSystem reservoir and Lube Tube shown
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.
Note: Adapter SA-0098BL shown.
Ensure tip of injector is accurately positioned at the base of sprocket teeth, avoiding the chain and nuts - with the slash cut 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.
Your Comments and Feedback
We would love to hear about your experience. Maybe you have found a better way to install the Scottoiler? A neater way to route the tubing or hide the reservoir?
