Scot oiler

Has anyone put a Scot oiler on their 990R. If so do you know where the vacuum line is to plug into.

i used to have a system simular to the scottoiler back in the 70s when oils wernt oils ..all you had was 20 50 for all engines castrol or castrol R and a few other big names
Chain oil/ grease was normaly old engine oil boiled up and your chain soaked in it over winter ready for summer ready to race
and with todays oils greases coatings waxes on and on do we realy need an oiler droping hot oil on your chain

i have a form of dislexia as i have said plenty of time and it dont bother me .................. but im not stupid or a tard so dont try it on

Vacuum connections

Easily done. The. Scottolier vacuum based system needs only to sense the vacuum created when the engine is running. You will note the 990R has two vacuum lines running to the outside of the bike on both the left and right sides, just below the fuel tank. Simply tee into any one of those four vacuum lines.

Best wishes,
Dick

Wink lubing chains?

col;
on my 4 stroke dirt bikes i ran the crankcase breather to the inside of the bottom run of the chain......

no one could figure why my chain was spotless and lasted so long

the oil misted on to the chain lubed it and carried the dirt/grit away

chain waxes and sticky lubes KEEP the dirt/grit on the chain and grind stuff up faster.....and you can't lube an O-ring chain internally

and flung oil is way easier to clean up than chain wax

most of the old English dry sump bikes had an adjustable chain oiler, usually the adjuster was just inside the oil tank

I use bike as commuter & long tripper as well. Traded in my Speed Triple for it. I did 25knlast year on triple so oiling my chain seems wise. I used the Tuturo manual chain luber on the triple as the vacuum line was too hard to access but I'll go back to the Scot oiler if it's easy to install.

I never lube my chains - I only use WD40 or ACF50 for corrosion protection. I keep them spotlessly clean.

Like has been said, oil etc only attracts dirt and creates a grinding paste that wears them out quicker.

I rarely have to adjust them and never get tight spots. They only need the internal lubrication that is injected during assembly.

It's a routine that has worked for me for decades across road, race and various engine configurations.

Aiki, that's pretty significant distance in a year.
