Here's a copy of the ScottOiler installation I did on my SMT a few months back

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


Today I picked up a Scottoiler for the SMT then I got a hair up my @r$e and decided to fit it straight away.

At first glance it was difficult to find the vacuum connector that the instructions were referring to, so I went online to the Scottoiler website and downloaded the other installation instructions. This was when I realised I was looking on the left hand side for the vacuum connector when it is actually on the right hand side.
Whatever you do dont drop the vacuum pipe fitting, it falls inbetween the V of the cylinder and is a real paininthearse to fish it out.
I then routed the vacuum hose over the back of the rear cylinder, using cable ties to attach it to an existing hose.

Image
Image

The KTM installation instructions has the oil resevoir mounted to the frame tube higher than were I positioned it. (The one abovethe unit to the left)
I preferred the positiion that i used as it kept all the pipes shorter and closer to the frame therefore less chance of them working loose or rubbing against something.

Image
Image

There is a 10mm threaded hole at the rear of the swingarm, I assume this is for crash bobbins or paddock stand rollers, but I used this to attach the drip tube, I used a 10mm cap screw (looks neater). The clamp supplied by Scottoiler required trimming with tinsnips for it to fit properly.
Image

The swingarm must be thoroughly cleaned and degreased before you attach the oil feede pipe conduit.
This conduit is supplied in a long length and you cut it to the length (piece) you require.
The Conduit is then "supeglued" to the swingarm, and the oil feed pipe is in turn "superglued" into the conduit.
At first I was sceptical about this method but it actually works very well and the conduit hold the oil feed pipe well away from all moving parts.
Image

The oil feed pipe was then fed up through a gap at the back of the left rear foot rest mounting, I used a piece of the conduit on the inner surface for this. and it clamped the oil feed pipe at least 20-25mm away from the chain - ideal.
It then looped up and was attached to the outlet of the oil reservoir.
Image
Image

Then, you fill the oil reservoir with oil, and prime the system. Priming is done by forcing air into the reservoir using the filler bottle attached to the breather, this forces the oil down the oil feed pipe and into the drip tube.

Image
Image
Image

You then start the bike and adjust the flow rate until you achieve approximately 1 drop per minute

The whole installation took about 1hr 20min.

I love my Scotoiler and am laughing at all my sport bike buddies who were critical of the oiler as they spend major coin replacing their chains and sprockets!

A couple of things I did different from Katum, the vacuum source comes from tapping into the emissions canister line, I used the black loops supplied with the Scotoiler kit and tucked the line under the plastic chain guide under the swing arm.

I plan to use Sthil's green chainsaw bar oil once I use up the oil that came with the oiler.

Thanks for the fitting tips, just got my kit, and seeing one on a SMT was really useful. ;)

These are a good bit of kit, I would most definitely recommend, not only does it give you a well lubed chain but it also makes cleaning the chain really easy and you are not removing layers of wax & grease. I would also recommend the dual head nozzle, as you can dial back the amount of oil that you use.

as for mounting, I also ran my oil line in between the swingarm and chain guide.

- only downside is a little bit of excess spray that gets baked onto the underside of the left can, easily removed with a little wd40 -

I fitted my Scottoiler to feed at the front sprocket under the cover. A much neater fit without running tubeing along swingarm. I turned down the drip rate quite a bit as fling off was to much on the recommended rate, but still lubricates the chain nicely. You do not even see any tubeing as its behind the trellis frame. Been working fine for some weeks. I will try and post some pictures today.

Ok some pictures, a wee bit late but eventually getting a grip of how to post pictures.

No messy Scottoiler tubes along the swingarm.

Tubing held with grooved conduit

This has worked fine for the last 1000miles with drip rate greatly reduced from what Scottoiler recommended though.

Sorry about the dirty bike, just back from a rideout :oops:

:!: I also used a small dab of superglue on the tubeing to grooved conduit at the last point prior to the drip spout. Just to ensure it does not work loose and get chewed up by the chain.
The clearance of the tubeing and conduit near the chain and around the swingarm pivot is tight. So take your time in positioning the conduit. Get it wrong and it will probably get damaged by the chain.

It was a bit experimental and I turned the drip rate right down to about third around the rotation, much more results in to much fling off.

There was some oil fling onto the rear shock but very little once I had adjusted the flow rate down.
I have got a Skidmarx hugger to fit once I have painted it which should provide further protection.

Overall I think it is a much neater and less fussy fit. :)

Great post bug :D just copyed your post and moved my pd-oiler feed to the front . having a chat and looking at my smt with my local suzuki dealer a couple of months ago he was saying how they fit there oilers onto there bikes onto the front sproket so less pipe work and neater .at the time could not work out how to fit mine :( thanks again :D :D :D

I did think of placing mine near front sprocket but not being able to see at a glance if its still in same position changed my mind not sure about the tape either it needs welding in place hehe.

Same here drip rate turned right down dont mind a little mess but not wot is suggested by Scottoiler 2 drips every minute the more oil you use the better for them.(or could because Im a tight barsteward :lol: )
Old enough to know better but wtf

Hey just make sure everything is degreased before fitting the conduit tape and use some superglue at the final bit of tubeing.
:!: A cheaper alternative to Scottoilers exspensive oil is Chainsaw chain oil. I spoke to a few guys who have been using it for a few years with no problems, only saveing money. ;)
