Scottoiler X System
« on: 20 December, 2018, 07:13:59 PM »
I've just ordered a Scottoiler X System and was wondering if anyone has fitted one to the Tiger Sport, I'm considering fitting the end of the system to the 'shark fin' somehow and angling it onto the sprocket from there...any info or ideas greatly appreciated...

Im not into scottoilers but the scottoiler website normally has fitting guides for most models.

Yeah I looked on the website and it recommends using the mounting where the shark fin is without it. Im thinking I might be able to keep both on the same mounting. I havent had a Scottoiler for years since I was a dispatch rider in London. I swore by the them as I was doing 50k a year...they were brilliant hassle  free devices. Im hoping the new versions are even better. I find chain maintenance a drag, especially when Im on one of my mini tours...

Don't know what you mean by a 'shark fin', but I've found a long applicator touching on the inside of the rear sprocket at about 8 o'clock works well. As said, the Scottoiler website has pretty good info ...

By shark fin I mean the chain guide protector piece under the bottom of the swinging arm just in front of the rear sprocket.

I just drilled a small hole into the underside of the swing-arm and used a self-tapper to mount the clip.

Tip - don't rely on the Scottoiler-supplied sticky mounts for the feed tube, but use something stronger, I.e. resin based glue.

Thanks for the reply, not sure I fancy drilling into the swinging arm though. I have heard the supplied adhesive is not so good. I also considered drilling a small hole into the end of the shark fin and mounting it onto that.

I have a slightly different system (wick hanging over chain) but I am thinking of making a little bracket and using one of the "shark fin" attachment screws to hold it in place.

Hi there had the x system on the TS but even on the lowest setting was still to much oil and a lot of fling,so done a diy job with a brake reservoir  and a primer bubble fed it to the chain guide no fling works a treat and way cheaper than the x system :001:

I have the vac system on my TS & the touring vac system on my traillie. I have the e system on my T800, that has some good features.
