This thing is dangerous. I've emailed scottoiler and it's going back for a refund. As this is gravity feeding the reservoir as at times, the reservoir gets over full. Which in turn pushes the oil out of the filling hole and around the adjustment dial.

My garage floor looks like an oil tanker has crashed and my back tyre is slippery as hell  :232:
I'm waiting to hear back from Scottoil so I can get this thing sent back for a refund.

Luckily I'm the sort of bloke who does a walk round check before taking the bike out. Otherwise the oil on the back tyre could have caused a bad accident and killed me.  :005:

Looks like the rubber strap squeezing it might be the culprit, pressure feeding it rather than gravity feed.

I took the strap off straight after I took the photo. So not the culprit which is a shame.

OK, so no that then.
I've got a lube tube on my Tiger which is sort of the predecessor to the Traveller I guess.
Had an overflow on that once, but it was down to me squashing it by mistake.
Been fine since.

With the Magnum HCR oil gets sucked up/syphoned through. That design has worked fine for me.

I'm interested in this, but wary of the bag idea. How are your oiler & lube tube located to each other? I'm wondering if yours works by gravity or syphon.

The oil on the garage floor was from the bike just sitting overnight. Again, no strap holding it down. Just placed under the rear seat. It's possible I put it together wrong, but the instructions are the worst ever. I seem to recall when fitting a scottoiler to other bikes that the reservoir shouldn't be filled to the top as it can cause leaks. Which makes sense as this fills it to the brim by itself.

If I could have one fitted to the tiger I would have done. Worked fine on my last bike. The instructions show that the bag can be placed either above or below the reservoir, so it's suction that works on the bag I'm assuming.

They're mounted side by side under the seat.
Thought I had a pic somewhere but can't find it, I can take one if you want ?
