V Scottoiler
« on: April 15, 2021, 10:53:40 AM »
Hi all, advice please. I've just had new chain and sprockets fitted by my Triumph dealer and mentioned I'm going to fit a v scottoiler and he said it can affect the engine running if I tap into the vacuum tube. Anyone experienced problems?

Cant say I've experienced any obvious problems, apart from the reservoir dumping all the oil out when the first warm day arrived and I forgot to adjust the flow

The vacuum is not "used" for more than a second or so, it simply activates the valve on the oiler so providing there are no leaks in your pipework it is not an issue.
Also DRZ400sm for forest tracks, previous bikes:- Honda SS50, BSA 250SS80, Yamaha RD125, Yamaha TY250, Honda CBR600, Honda Africa Twin XRV750, Kawasaki KMX200, Kawasaki KDX200, Kawasaki KLX250

I have a V Scottoiler on my gen 2 800, no problems at all with running.

Which generation Tiger do you intend to fit it to? There are different tubes to cut, depending on year.

I fitted the X-system to my 900 and not only is it doodle to fit it works really well.
You are only jealous as the voices are seeking to me!

My Tiger is a2016 xrx low. I know the scottoiler is connected via the vacuum pipe on the LHS that runs from the injectors to just behind the gearbox. My reason for posting this question was whether or not it causes the nothing to run differently. The general consensus seems to be it's not a problem. Thanks all👍

Personally I prefer the Cobbra Nemo 2. Far simpler and more reliable.
