Enter your motorcycle make and model to learn more about how to install a Scottoiler chain oiler system on your bike:

XT660Z Tenere - (2008 >)

 Product Compatibility

  • vSystem
  • eSystem
  • Dual Injector
  • Lube Tube
  • 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

Step 1 - Find a vacuum source 

The first step is to find the vacuum connection on your bike. This could be an already existing and blanked of vacuum spigot, a vacuum blanking screw, a vacuum operated fuel tap or a balancing pipe between your cylinders. Once you have identified your vacuum source connect it with the vacuum damper elbow and black vacuum line to your Scottoiler. 

 

 

 

 

 
  

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

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 - 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.
