Pick of the Week: Scottoiler V System - The Original Auto Chain Oiler

scottoiler v system

What's a Scottoiler?

So our Pick of the Week this week is the original V System from Scottoiler, who if you didn't know before now are the leading manufacturers of automatic chain lubrication systems for motorcycles. So in short, a Scottoiler lubes your chain as you ride so you don't have to! You might have heard people at shows, meets or on forums arguing over how often you should be lubing your chain and if you're doing a lot of miles the chances are you probably aren't lubing it enough, which is why we thought it's be a good idea to let you know that there is an easier way to keep your drive chain wet.

What's the 'V' stand for?

The Scottoiler V System is the original auto chain lubricator that Scottoiler developed, which uses the vacuum created by the engine to open a valve inside the Scottoiler chain oil reservoir allowing oil to flow down to your chain. If the idea of taking a vacuum feed off your bike scares you then no need to worry because the actual air vacuum required to open the reservoir valve is so small (3ccs to be exact) that is has no affect on your engine. All the connectors that you will need to connect the V System to your engine are provided along with instructions on how to connect it up.

Once the oil's been released from the reservoir it travels down a pipe and out of a spout mounted on your swingarm which should be close to the sprocket face. By dispersing the oil against the sprocket face it allows the whole chain to pick up the oil and not just one part, keeping it coated in a consistent film.

Aswell as saving you a tonne of time and hassle, Scottoiler claim you can extend the lifespan of a chain by up to 7 times using the V System by keeping your chain coated throughout your ride stopping any dry friction and keep dirt and grit off the moving parts of your chain. Unlike some chain oilers the V System is suited to all types of chain including 'O' ring. Scottoiler also offer a range of colour coded V Systems and bike specific chain oiling systems.
