It kind of wicks to the other side, but my next setup is a dual nozzle type for sure. It'll keep the chain cleaner on the inboard side.

I don't really understand chains. On my old bikes, I did no maintenace at all on the chain, other than smearing them with bearing grease every so often.
When I bought the wee, I religiously applied a high quality chain lube every week, and the chain was shot after 10,000 kms. I think I got a bum chain from the factory.
My new chain (I changed the sprockets too) is 14,000 kms old and still perfect.
I don't know if I shoud credit the chain's quality ot the scottoiler, but I definitely like the peace of mind afforded by the scottoiler; I can just ride and forget about the thing, other than filling the reservoir with ATF every 15,000kms or so.

Why did you choose ATF SD?

- The scottoil is basically ATF without the detergents.
- The scottoil I have tends to form white clumps at the bottom of the tank

Prime problem

This is the first time I've installed a Scottoiler since 01 on my FZ1. Can't remember any problems priming the FZ1 but after installing on the Wee, I had to blow on the inlet hose enough that I had to change shorts three times before I forced the oil down to the tip. 65 degrees F here tonight.
If I remember correctly, I just turned to prime on the FZ1 and it eventually ran out the tip.
I installed the non-touring model on the inside of the top GIVI racks as above but ran the outlet tube inside the side panels with a loop and then down the sub frame to the swing arm. The loop is below the reservoir. I'm about to run the outlet hose down the rack strut to the swing arm like the later poster. Still don't understand why the lack if prime. I checked the zip ties and none were compressing the hose. Any thoughts? Ian, Iowa

You know it's vacuum operated, right? Your engine has to be running.

Anyone ever have it draw oil up the vacuum line?

No, it's physically impossible for it to do that, as the vacuum (needle-lifting) and the oil-drip mechanisms are not connected in any way that oil can get from the one into the other.
I think that's a pretty dumb question actually; maybe a smarter question would have been "how does the system work? any chance of it sucking oil up the vacuum line?

The vacuum lifts up a needle that meters the oil dispensing onto the sprocket; the oil never gets into the tube that lifts the needle, and even if there were damage to its diaphragm, the vacuum tube would only suck in normal athmosphere.
