Thumbs up Scottoiler location

G'Day Demuire and V Guys/Gals,

On my V, the scottoiler was done by the last owner.
I think he did a good job putting the scottoiler there.
For installation, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mv2e1hR7Ym0

I wanted refilling of the lub oil to be KISS (Keep it simple, Sir).
I use cheap 80W-90 gear oil using the small plastic container seen.
Shoot in the lub oil into the scottoiler and it is clean and simply.

There are times I lift up the rear to freely turn the chain to lub it (No centre stand on the V)
Used a rear swingarm stand hooked to the bolts bolted to the swingarm to do that. Do not want to stratch the swingarm.

This is my first chain and sprocket bike.
Appreciate your suggestions and ideas for the chain maintenance.


Ride Fast and Safe.

To clarify what I meant by shooting the lub oil.

Thanks heaps. Interesting how he's just sandwiched the bracket onto the subframe there, I wonder if it would ever get loose and/or vibrate out? I suppose you've done quite a few k's with it like that and it works...

So far, it has worked at it should and made lubing easier.

Best Regards.
