Any Scottoiler Experts? V System valve won't release.
« on: October 11, 2017, 05:33:48 PM »
As per title, my Scottoiler has stopped working, I've got the V System and had all the pipes off and cleaned them out and taken out any kinks in the lines.

But it seems the problem is with the valve inside the big plastic tube, it won't release when the bike is running.  Is this something I can take apart or sealed?  The line to the engine is still securely attached.  Or is there some other problems with the system?

Any help appreciated, as I found it quite handy during crappy weather for keeping my chain clean.

Cheers
Jay

The guys at Scottoiler are brilliant, give them a call

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

If the valve won't lift my 1st thought is lack of vacuum to actually lift.  If you pull tubing off and use a syringe or just suck on the black tubing coming from the top of the reservoir can you see the valve lift?  To make it easier turn the adjuster for max flow.

Cheers,

Will try 'sucking' and see what happens, hope the Mrs isn't watching as she thinks I already spend too much time alone with the bike.  :034:
