Fitting a scotoiler
on: 22 November, 2020, 10:07:41 PM
Hey guys,

where have you taken the vacuum feed from for the scotoiler V system. Guess it can only be 1 or 4 cylinders but just wondering which you too,

Do I need to take the tank off to get at it?

cheers

I put the reservoir under the seat with a loose'ish cable tie to keep it in position.
Just a word of caution - some years after fitting the Scottoiler I hade terrible problems with poor starting, erratic tick over, uneven and poor acceleration - sometimes surging and sometimes not accelerating as expected. These problems emerged very gradually but made the bike almost unrideable at the end. I became convinced the Throttle Position Sensor was faulty.
I booked the bike in for repair and paid 90 to find out that the Scottoiler vacuum line T joint had started to leak (maybe perished with age or UV light?) and the engine was running far too lean. The mechanic replaced it with a good one and my bike was back to normal - to my great relief!
So if you have problems as outlined above, suspect air leakage into the vacuum lines and check the point where the Scottoiler connects to the vacuum lines if you have one fitted
