Take a couple of zip-ties and circle the swing arm where the Velcro attachment is upstream from the disbursal nipples. This will assure that the line won't fall off. I use ATF in my Scottoiler. I use setting #2.Labrador-Lance said:Lance hates to clean and oil chains. It's messy work. So Lola wanted a Scottoiler.
And what Lola wants, Lola gets!
There is a rubber plug on the side of the top, with a hose attached to it. You can simply remove the rubber plug and fill the scottoiler through that hole using the tube attached to the filler bottle.Lars said:I have a Scottoiler, but I dont understand where and how to fill it.
Please tell me before I break it.
Yes, but you will wear out your spockets much faster, particularly aluminum.lubricity said:Well sorry to disagree. But it is the 21st century. An oiler? on a motorcycle? Just a shot of chain wax once a week (If you do tons of riding) or once a month for most of the gay riders. NO MESS, and good protection of the chain.
I couldn't find this in the HOW section... I don't suppose you'd have an exact link for it?Stick said:I wanted one, and since the flexible/snake reseroir wasn't available at the time, I made one. I believe it's in our Halls Of Wisdom area. Nice, small reservoir, and it works well! I use ATF also. Cost me about $20 for the 12VDC solenoid valve. It fit exactly where I wanted it it. And it does a decent job! 28,000 miles from the OEM chain and sprockets
Well, I guess I had no idea what I was stepping into when I mounted a ScottOiler on my ST4S, but it seems to function flawlessly for we heterosexual riders, as well.lubricity said:Just a shot of chain wax once a week (If you do tons of riding) or once a month for most of the gay riders.
I just had a long conversation with a Ducati repair shop owner about this subject. He did an extensive (this is his story) study on chain wax. Even photographed a chain in action with a strobe light. The findings according to him. The chain wax works fine as long as you don't ride when cold. If the weather is cold the chain wax caused the o-rings to flex until warm and resulted in premature wear. His recommendation was the Scottoiler using ATF.lubricity said:Well sorry to disagree. But it is the 21st century. An oiler? on a motorcycle?
