    Hi Guys, a question for those who have a Scottoiler fitted. Where did you take the vacuum take off please? I assume its a tank off job is it??

    Thanks.

    I haven't looked, but I have heard that there isn't a logical point to connect it to.

    You could use one of their electronic versions and forget about vacuum lines.

    They have vacuum ports downstream of the throttle bodys....but the throttle body has to come off to access them....a major ball-ache.

    Ive spoken to Scotoiler , they say there is no vacuum pick up point on the XR, I got Santa last year to drop the electronic version down the chimney , its fitted on a treat , just connected directly to pos and neg directly onto battery , and mounted left side of frame, works great and very easy to refill and adjust flow rate, costly though £190 🤬

    Oh well, I guess I'll fit it to one of my other bikes... but thanks for clarification.

    I made my own electronic oiler, has been there for three years and works brilliantly.... and cost only $30 Aussie sheckles.. :028: I'll be buggered if I'll pay $400+ for something to dribble oil on my chain.
