Unfortunately we have not found a way of installing a Scottoiler vSystem on this model. Either no vacuum connection is available or accessing the vacuum connection takes professional help and a lot of time. For the moment we can only recommend fitting our electronic operated Scottoiler eSystem or xSystem instead.
The xSystem chain oiler is really easy to install and can be mounted on your bike in less than 1 hour. The installation consists of the three simple steps:
For an example of the installation see our xSystem Installation guide.
If you have our system installed on this specific motorcycle model, we would appreciate if you could send us pictures. With more pictures we can make the Installation even easier for all motorcyclists. Please send us your feedback and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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 (ideally above 15° from horizontal) to maximise the available range.
The Lube Tube can be mounted inside the side panels for extra capacity.
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.
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.

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.
