Scottoiler Esystem
« on: February 07, 2012, 09:54:09 PM »
A few guys have asked me to do a review and post a few images of the Scottoiler Esystem... here it is.

I was a big fan of the original Vsystem quite a few years ago when a mate had one on a CBR600 Blade, his chain always looked brand new and there was no crap distributed around his rim, a quick wipe with a rag and the rim looked great too.
The only problem was whilst sitting at the lights or stuck in traffic, the system still dropped that timed drop of oil....

Now thats a thing of the past... The new Esystem is constantly live, just sleeping until the bike is started and it detects the vibrations, turning the system on.  Inside the control module is an accelerometer, this detects movement and will not dispense any oil until such time.

The fitment of the control panel


The screen showing seconds per drop (from 30-180), ambient temp, oil res level and status


The placement of the pump/reservoir where the tools once lived (Scottoiler's reccomened placement), they are now wrapped in a rag and rest on top of the fuse box area.


Nozzle is located under the chain guard and set to touch the sprocket on the side of the base area of the teeth, checking it doesn't get caught up when the CR is pushed backwards.
would have been so much easier had honda used a flat sprocket with no machined area in it. (the nozzle can run anywhere on the flat of the sprocket)


Closer view


It's only been a thousand K's but the chain looks clean and has no crap gummed up all over it.
If you are considering an automatic lube system, I highly recommend this.

Thanks for posting the review. This answers one of my questions regarding the nozzle positioning. The ambient temperature is very good to have on your dash, especially using the winter months.

Where / how did you mount the reservoir? Any pics of this and tips for routing the tube?

The reservoir is just under the bands that hold the toolkit in (this is where they suggest), toolkit has been relocated above the fuses.
I have just run the tube down the front of the battery, looped it under the rear brake line between it and the chain guard, then down to the nozzle.

All looks pretty neat and tidy - have had vsystem in the past but although cheaper - have left it on the bike as I couldn't be bothered to dismantle the V pipe connection. The E system looks much simpler to fit, regulate/refill and portable - so worth the extra dosh.

its a nice system Joe.. but 200 quid.....
I've got the mark 7 vacuum scottoiler.  I've sussed how to fit it neatly.  but still not sure whether to fit it or not.  still unimpressed about the oil contamination I suffered on the disk with it when fitted to the vtec.

I have the V system from the previous bike but there are a few things I'm not totally comfortable with so I might wait for more feedback from those of you who use it every day.

1) installing the reservoir is not very neat nor secure ... but there isn't any other option other than the touring reservoir but this is minor.
2) positioning the nozzle on the sprocket's edge seems to be a precision job for which the nozzle hasn't been designed IMO. I remember I spent a great deal of time positioning the nozzle on the previous bike which had a normal, non-machines sprocket.
3) Haven't experienced oil contamination on the rear disk but since I use that brake quite a lot, I may never notice it ... and that may cause trouble long turn by contaminating the pads.

With the electronic system there is price and the display is pretty big and rather ugly (personal taste). Apart from the ambient temperature, I'm not sure I would need all that info in front of me all the time.

the rear sprocket is not a problem.  just line up carefully on the edge.

the oil contamination problem I had with the vtec, I never suffered with the scottoiler on the fz6 fazer or transalp.  the problem is because swing arm is single sided, the disk is very close to the chain. 
as the oil flings off wind flow drags it onto disk.  this leaves you the dilemma of turning flow down to 1 drop every 2mins and having a dry chain or backing that up with chain lube that then is washed off with oil and gets flung everywhere and gunks front sprocket up.

I've got the touring res that sits behind the number plate but I'm going down the dry lube path I think.

Hi all

I realise this is an old thread but can anyone tell me if the E System comes with all parts required for fitting to the Crossrunner?

Cheers. . .
