has anyone fitted a scottoiler to their 1050 ST ?

there are several things Id like to know before buying:
1. would you recomend fitting a scottoiler, if so which model should I go for
2. are there any issues that I should be aware of, inc, invalidating the triumph warranty or should I avoid fitting a Scottoiler
3. are there any other chain oilers that are more suitable

Mate,
I fitted a scottoiler to my 05 Sprint and found it to be great and recommend it to other riders. as far as i know there are no issues in regard to warranty. Lastly I believe that the scottoiler is one of to best oilers around. Hope this helps and safe riding.

I had the scottoiler on my TDM and agree it works well.

On my Sprint I fitted a loobman.

In Oz the Loobman was < $50 the Scottoiler was $250. I was quite happy with the Loobman and when I traded the Sprint with 32000km it was still on the original chain and sprocket set looking like it will get anoth 8000-10000k before it needs replacing. That's about the same life as I'd expect with the loobman.

thanks for the replies everyone, I`m still undecided whether or not to buy, but I have spoken to the tech people at scottoiler and they say there isn`t an issue with the warranty, it seems its down to the individual dealers. They do however say that I should not use a high capacity touring kit as it is not suitable for the ST.
They recommend a MK7 kit with an additional lube tube kit. and I`d also need a F.O.C single sided swing arm bracket (SA-0090) which is available from them

I have fitted one to my 06 Sprint. I am not sure how to make a clicky, hope someone can do this for me?
Have a look at Photo albums, new submissions and my picture showing the new shock. you will also see that I have a Scott oiler fitted.
It works very well, on my old 00/01 sprint I got over 50k out of the original chain and sprockets. :cool: :cool:

<BR>just a couple of questions:
<BR>1. Am I right, have you have located the unit in front of the sprocket cover, is that position OK?
<BR>2. how did you attach the scottoiler to the bike?
<BR>Looking at the position on my bike it looks possible to mount the unit onto the backing bar of my R&G crash protetors on the L/H side
<BR>
<BR>3. also do you have a lube tube fitted as well?
<BR>4. did you have any problems routing the vacuum feed pipe and oil pipe?
<BR>
<BR>any chance of you posting some more detailed pictures of the oiler setup on your bike

This is complete rubbish. I have an RS which also says it shouldn't fit. I have the high capacity reservoir and dual dispenser. Its the best on the market. The HC Res probably ahs about a years supply of oil mind lol...

thats why I am asking the members of this forum for their experiences and comments
tbh I`d prefer to fit a HC touring kit as I can then leave it alone & forget about the chain lube in the long term :-D
in size how much bigger is the HC MK7 kit in relation to the MK7 universal kit?

Scottoiler Magnum HCR Kit
item #: SO-0005

This addition to the Universal Kit increases oil capacity by eight times, from 50ml to 400ml, and should give you 4000 to 6000 miles between refills (depending on your flow rate setting). This is an ideal addition for any biker who will be travelling long distances, or for any biker who just can't be bothered refilling the system very often!

Or in fact ever! By the current rate, this is about 2 years supply for me
:-D

Kazjim,
Motorworks here in Hobart sells them and if you contact them (03) 62343888 and they will be more than happy to send you one. As for what type to fit, well with mine I just fill it up when it looks nearly empty. It ain't rocket science, is it?

The unit is mounted using one of the screws for the sprocket cover and seems to work ok. I do not have a lube tube but it would be handy for long trips. The dealer fitted the oiler to the bike from new so I presume that they had no problem running the lines.
I will post some more pics showing the scottoiler in more detail.
Cheers :)

The best way to fit these is to have the HRC mounted behind the numberplate. The RMV slots into a housing on the HRC. This way, everything is better as it is upright. The feed tube runs towards the front of the bike on the lhs along the rear subframe, down the frame towards the swinging arm, under the swinging arm to the dual dispenser, which drips oil onto both sides of the chain on the rear sprocket.

thats why Scottoiler techies say you can`t use the HCR on the 1050 ST. because mounting it behind the number plate can cause issues when you run the feed pipes close to the underseat exhaust, due to heat given off the exhaust possibly melting the feed pipe.

I spose that would put a new meaning to burning ring of fire

hi PierreOBollox,
have had a Scottoiler fitted on my 06 ST for six months having covered about 4000 miles.I havn't had to adjust the chain yet and am still on the original bottle of oil. The system is fitted on the left subframe rail above the chainguard and looks really neat. I would recommend to anyone especially riding in British winter weather.
Cheers. :hammer:
