Note: 

 If you have purchased a 2019 eSystem or vSystem the adapter SA-0178BL should be included. Identify your kit contents here.

 
 
Please Note

The Dual Injector accessory is not compatible with this model. We recommend the standard single injector assembly instead. Read more about Dispenser Positioning

 
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.

 

  1. Go to vSystem Installation
  2. Go to xSystem Installation
  3. Go to eSystem Installation

 

vSystem Installation 

Step 1 - Find a vacuum source 

There is a vacuum pipe from the inlet tract to the EVAP system. Cut this pipe and insert the 6mm Tee connector. Push the vacuum damper onto the third leg of the Tee connector.

Note: View from the right side of the engine.

 

  

 
 
For 1290 models without  EVAP systems see below : -
 

Locate the vacuum – There is a vacuum point on the inlet tract. Remove the screw and replace with the M5 Brass Spigot from the Scottoiler kit, using some RTV Silicon Sealant on the threads to ensure an airtight seal. Then press the Damper Elbow onto the spigot. For further information see our easy step installation guide - Vacuum Connections General.

 

 

Note: Use KTM washer with the Scottoiler M6 spigot. Lightly apply silicon the threads. Do not over-tighten the spigot!!

 

Push vacuum damper onto spigot.

 

 Step 2 - Find a place for the reservoir 

The reservoir can be mounted to the frame. 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 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

 

 
 

 

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.

 

 


 

xSystem Installation 

 

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 dispenser is held using the dispenser plate and clip, secure by the slipper strip bolt. The Injector must lightly  touch the outside face of the sprocket, with the slash cut facing outwards.  Use self adhesive clips to route the delivery tubing along the swing arm and up to the reservoir, avoiding the chain and any hot engine or exhaust components.

  

 
 
 

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.

 

 

 


 

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 to the frame. 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 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

 

 
 

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.
