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 

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

Assemble the dispenser mounting block and bolt the dispenser plate to the mounting block. Secure the dispenser on the dispenser plate using the dispenser clip. Clean the underside of the swing arm thoroughly, and prepare the area by wiping in one direction with the alcohol wipe and then firmly press the block on - with pressure, for 5 seconds. Ensure that the tip of the Injector touches the sprocket face, 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 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 dispenser on your rear sprocket

Assemble the dispenser mounting block and bolt the dispenser plate to the mounting block. Secure the dispenser on the dispenser plate using the dispenser clip. Clean the underside of the swing arm thoroughly, and prepare the area by wiping in one direction with the alcohol wipe and then firmly press the block on - with pressure, for 5 seconds. Ensure that the tip of the Injector touches the sprocket face, 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.


 

 

The xSystem reservoir unit can be mounted in various locations on your motorcycle such as frame tubes or under the seat. The reservoir must be at least at a a slight angle with the outlet facing downwards. 

 

 
 

The xSystem must be wired directly to the battery. Attach the red wire to the +ve terminal and attach the black wire to the -ve terminal.

Slightly loosen the battery terminal screws to slip in the spade connectors. 

 
 

The multiform dispenser block can be manipulated and cut to fit most swing arms. Assemble the dispenser unit as per instructions. Identify the exact location before taking of the adhesive. Match up the adjustment of your chain with the adjustment of the multiform block to allow for forward/backward adjustment in line with your chain variance. 

Before taking off the adhesive thoroughly clean the area and then wipe it down with the included IPA Alcohol Wipes to remove any residue. 

 Alternatively you can use the micro dispenser plate by itself on any other mounting point on your rear swing arm / sprocket location such as bobbin mounts or toe guards. 

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

Identify a desired location for the check valve in the delivery line. The location of the check valve can be anywhere along the delivery line and should be protected from outside elements. Fill the reservoir and prime the pump until oil reaches your desired check valve location. Cut and insert the check valve with the arrow facing in the direction of the oil flow. Repeat priming the pump until oil reaches the sprocket.

 
 

Set the flow rate on the middle section and adjust if required up/down depending on your riding conditions. 

The xSystem will automatically switch on/off and no manual activation is necessary. You can manually turn the system on/off if you transport the motorcycle on a ferry or trailer.
