Scottoiler install
on: 13 Jan 20, 04:06:48
Hi all, I’ve been wanting to install a Scottoiler on my bike but couldn’t figure out where to mount the oil container.
It’s a vacuum model.
It needs to be visible & I didn’t want to loose space under the seat.
So, after some head scratching I fixed it tucked away to the inner fairing immediately in front of the radiator.
It’s working great.
There’s enough height where it is to be above the final delivery point at the rear sprocket
Just thought I’d share

Looks good, how's the oil delivery with it being so far away? I've got the e system and found the further away the pump was the more drops per second I had to dial in. Might just be that my pump is about 7 years old though. Not sure if this position would be any good for you as your unit pumps from the bottom but it's real easy to fill.

I think you will get flow rate problems with it being so close to the radiator.

Interesting Bubba. Always more than one way to skin a cat I guess.
Mine hasn't had much use yet but its dispensing ok.
If its warmed by the radiator I can crank it down some, in the garage, setting it to one drip a minute wasn't an issue & I let it get up to, fan coming on temperature. This was at roughly the one third open position.
I,ll report back at some point, middle of summer here, warm to hot, fires & smoke about, not great but theres many others a lot worse off than the outskirts of East Melbourne.

I’ve been giving it some thought.
The oil dispenser being near the radiator.
It could be getting warmed some, yep ?
But, that warming should be reasonably consistent over the seasons.
Engine running temperatures are fairly static.
Unlike the weather, here in Oz I can be riding in 40 deg C in the summer down to seeing snow in the mountains in the winter.
So if the dispenser was mounted on the frame it would be exposed to a bigger temperature variation than in front of the radiator. Logical ?
It works there any who.

Mate if it works then leave well alone. It certainly is tucked out the way there. I'm just across the water in Auckland - much gentler temp variation. Currently running blue Scott oil but I might try a gear oil for better flow.

Ah Ha, I hadn't noticed the close ( relative ) proximity Bubba, apologies.
The special lady & I keep meaning to get back there for a lap.
Maybe next summer ? For a couple of weeks ish
Love the roads / scenery in Un Zed.
I could pick your brains about bike hire maybe, something for 2 up, only seems to be Beemers or Harleys on the hire companies listings.
A Multistrada would be good.
We have one here for 2 up touring etc
 
About to DO Tazzy again in early Feb.
35 booked in, should be awesome & a bit.

I can certainly make some enquiries for you. Nothing comes to mind but I'm in the Ulysses club and someone there will know.

Many thanks
But no stress
A good while to think about it

I should look into the cost of shipping a bike there n back too
Cheers 🍻

I would agree.  However I would recommend that you set the flow rate with the bike thoroughly hot.  I.e. after a decent run.  In my experience the flow rate from scottoilers varies dramatically with viscosity of the oil (logical if you think how it works).  The last thing that your want it's the flow rate to increase significantly when you are out on a run.  (It's the primary reason why I prefer the pdOiler.)
