Where ever you chose just try to keep the flow line from the reservoir to the outlet as short as possible.Hi. Been going through a load of old bits and found that I have more than enough to put a scottoiler together.
Has anyone got any advice or pictures as where to fit the metering unit?
I was wondering about the extra suck of a twin. Have you tried the thicker red oil or possibly a restrictor in the vacuum line.Where ever you chose just try to keep the flow line from the reservoir to the outlet as short as possible.
If it is long then the oil builds up a gravity feed and then the amount of adjustment you have on the reservoir is very limited.
I installed one of the large reservoirs that are mounted behind the license plate and the flow line was about 48 inches long. I had only about 20-30 degrees of adjustment from full off to a big oily mess.
The main advantages to a Scotts are;So the benefit is a well-oiled chain, but does that extend chain life or sprocket life? Any studies of the difference?
There is no extra suck with a big bike. The vacuum just raises a needle valve off its seat. The amount of clearance on the valve is determined by the adjuster knob on the top of the reservoir.I was wondering about the extra suck of a twin.
