scottoiler

  1. Mechanical Advice
    I'm just going through my new to me Transalp 700, fitting a scottoiler and have discovered a major defect in the chain. PO stated chain and sprockets were about 1k old, no discerable wear on sprocket and chain could not be pulled away from the rear sprocket teeth and plenty of adjustment left, I...

    Went to view a vigor today. Bloke had a couple for sale. Nice guy. And many others in bits in his garage. I particularly liked the one with lower miles. Blue, 1999, every accessory you could need. 6000 miles. We struck a fair deal but im slightly worried about the oil dripping from under the...

    Hi all, I have fitted Givi PL148 pannier racks to my 1993 RD07 Africa Twin. I now find that I am unable to remove the left hand sidecover in order to access my Scottoiler reservoir and the fuses. At the closest point, there is only about 1cm gap between the cover and the rack. It doesn't matter...

    Hi guys, just awaiting delivery of a 99 AT, I'm planning to fit a chain oiler and have used Scottoiler in the past, which oiler do you guys recommend? I always felt you were adjusting the scottoiler from filthy everything to no oil! Thanks in advance JTP

    Just bought a used Scottoiler of the Ebay and fitted to my FX 650 Vigor this afternoon (yes Bobn, it's still making me smile). Being as I am frugal - 'read tight' I'm hoping I don't have to buy Scottoiler branded oil. Can anyone advise as to what oil I can find in my workshop I can use in the...

    While I was filling up on Saturday, just before a jaunt down the A702 to watch the Tornado steam loco go past, I had a brief conversation with a couple who were touring the UK on their dark grey XL650 Transalps. I was impressed at the collection of flag stickers on the side panels and luggage...

    Trying to mount the Tutoro automatic oiler on the vara.. A real pain to find the best place for the resorvoir.. Present o got it mounted on the left pass peg but it looks quite odd there.. Thinking of mounting it inside the left cover up on the screw holding the inner fender in place BUT.. doing...

    Good afternoon gent's and ladies. The other Scottoiler thread reminded me of something. The Scottoiler on my bike was already fitted when I bought the bike, it is connected to the vacuum pipe for the fuel tap. It seems to be working very slowly i.e. it was half full when I bought the bike and is...

    No airbox or snorkel in the @ when I got it, tightened the carb intakes, took the bloody Scottoiler off and plugged the vacuum hole (OEM Honda bolt - nearly 2 squids! ;) ) K & N clones front and back bolted into the carbs, pink filter thing where the airbox inlet once was... Bike still sucks...

    Has anyone ever fitted a Scottoiler dual injector on a 650? Finding it hard to fit with the chain guard. Would appreciate any photos. Thanks mates!

    Will be buying a second hand Scottoiler from a friend. Is it possible to create a vacuum with mouth and a length of pipe to check if oil drips from the RMV as it should?

    Did anyone buy this chain oiler recently: LoobMan Motorcycle Chain Oiler Loobman chain-oiler - Shop. I want to buy one, this looks really cheap compared to the Scottoiler, but I'm open-minded to any other suggestions, don't be shy to share with me if you have any :) Please also let me know what...
  16. Africa Twin
    Just wondering if anyone knows where I can run a vacuum line to operate a scottoiler on an RD07. Can't see any vacuum hoses off the carbs but there may be a plug on the carb housing that I could connect a nipple and line to the unit?

    Hi, Just bought a 2002 XL 650V in mint conditions and I'm looking forward to touring this summer. However, I'm new to this bike and would appreciate some advice: Any suggestions for a good, not too expensive luggage system? I have a topbox fitted, that's all, and need 2 side cases and whatever...
  18. Bodgers Corner
    I'm putting this up as a potential bodge as I haven't taken this any further than having a thunk about it. There are several chain oilers out there from the automatic vacuum operated Scottoiler and it's electrically operated sibling to the manually operated Loobman. And there are bound to be...
