Where to install a Scott oiler
on: 06 Jul 20, 02:37:31
Hi all. I have a Scott oiler fitted by my dealer under the riders seat which is a bit of a pain to adjust and to keep an eye on to top up. I’m thinking of moving it and looking for better ideas. Where have you installed yours?

I drilled a6mm hole through the rear left peg  hand bracket and set it on the inside of the bracket, done this on both ninjas I’ve owned . If u have the facility get a pice of 6mm bore aluminium tubing and cut off 6mm long at45 degrees to provide an angled washer. This works well especially if u make and fix a v shaped dripper, with brass tubing, this oils the chain better

Made a small bracket to fit as shown, nicely out of the way but easily accessible. Later on fitted a lube tube under the seat so filling only necessary about 3500 miles.

Yes. That is where my panniers go so no good for me unfortunately.
