Your Scottoiler looks different to mine, is it an electronic version? Mines the standard type 

It's going to sit where the tool kit was. I removed it off the bike as it's got sod all that you're going to use if you break down anyway.

Yes, mine's the eSystem, I have the vSystem on my other bikes, got the touring kit that fits behind number plate on one, that's been on 5 bikes up to now, lasts all year.

 :492: yeah, toolkit is pitiful. I have a tool-tube fitted to me rack with puncture gubbins.

According to Scottoil, they are superceding the HCR Magnum with this new Traveller.

Gonna be a lot of people unhappy about this.

Selling them off ridiculously cheap. Shame they don't still do the slipper block. Loved that. My chain was always gleaming.

Had to google the slipper block, never seen one.

I bought the first one they ever made and had it on my Speed Four. Some people had issues with it breaking off but it was fine for me.

Until Scottoil got in touch and said they were sending me a new improved model. Next day on an advanced run, riding home and heard a strange clunk. Got home and my scottoiler was bone dry and the back of my bike looked like I'd rode through an oil spill. After the new model was fitted it was perfect, but they stopped making it soon after.

The problem with it was that it pushed the numberplate back and on a lot of bikes that took it out of the illumination area of the numberplate light, which is illegal. I had them on a couple of spineback Triumphs but I think they were deemed incompatible with the later bikes.

The Gen1 T800 wasn't strong enough, my pal had dealer fit one on his brand new T800, the mudguard broke off on his way home. That happened with a few bikes, I had thet touring ressie on all 3 Sprints, it's now on my traillie 'cos no suitable place to fit the oiler.

As promised.



Plenty of plastic hose to give you scope for positioning. Instructions are sure though. Useless pictograms. Makes an IKEA set of instructions look like a workshop manual in comparison.

Cut hose to length. Push plastic fitting into the hose. Remove the rubber part off the reservoir and ditch the breather pipe. Push another plastic part into the end of the rubber part and screw the 2 plastic connectors together. Gravity does the rest.

Won't get chance to test it's all working till the weekend.
