The Scottoiler xSystem is the ultimate in "Fit and Forget" easy chain maintenance for motorcycles.

Comprising an "intelligent" combined oil reservoir and valve, the unit detects the bike's movement and starts/stops oiling automatically, to deliver a constant flow of a clean, light biodegradable oil to the chain. The tiny but constant flow ensures that road dirt does not stick as with chain grease and so prevents the "premature" wear that is considered "normal" for a chain-drive transmission.

The xSystem is the easiest Scottoiler system to install, requiring only a connection to the battery and includes an industrial-strength adhesive support for the oil dispenser that can be folded and fitted to almost any swingarm!

xSystem 3.0 Features

  • Easy Reservoir Fitting – the tank can be fitted to any part of the frame or under the seat and will work in any inclination almost to horizontal, although the more vertical the tank, the more it can be filled/the further the range between refills. The tank slots into a support bracket so it can be easily removed/manipulated for refilling.
  • Easy Power Connection – the tank can be connected directly to the battery or via a power-distribution hub/key-switched supply and will not lose its configuration. No need to remove the fuel tank, cut any tubes or make any connection to the engine.
  • Easy Oil Dispenser Fitting – the support for the oil dispenser can be cut and fitted to almost any shape of swingarm, even those exotic curved Ducati models! No need for screws, cable ties or glue!
  • Easy to Use – the tank has fifteen flow rates which are available as 5 levels within three ranges allowing precise control in any conditions.
    There is no need to switch the xSystem on or off; the reservoir detects the engine vibration and starts to deliver oil automatically.
    When the bike is switched off, the reservoir goes into a low-power standby mode automatically too, using only 0.087mA, which might discharge a battery in a year or so!
    The xSystem con be manually switched off for bike storage/transportation.
  • Extended range – the tank has a 60ml capacity which should last well over 2000km (depending on the flow rate selected)! The range can be extended by using the Traveller additional oil pouch.

The system lubricates automatically using a light oil that both cleans and lubricates at the same time. You can easily adjust the flow rate to the conditions, maintaining the transmission and the bike free of old, dirty grease, thereby increasing the life up the chain by up to 7 times.

More than 35 years on the market, the Scottoiler is recognised as one of the very few accessories that will add resale value to a bike and probably the only one that will pay for itself and save you money and time.

Look for an installation example in the Scottoiler Support Centre.


  • increases the chain life by up to 7 times
  • keeps the wheel and the bike easily cleaned - no more sticky grease
  • save time and money by NOT cleaning, adjusting or changing the transmission
  • very efficient: one drop per minute is enough to protect the chain
  • travel more than 12,000km without refills (when using an additional tank: HCR Magnum, Traveller).
  • easy installation
  • for all types of bikes including fuel injection and two strokes
  • more than 35 years of experience and development

Comes with the standard injector that deposits oil to one side of the chain. For road bikes we recommend the Scorpion Dual Injector accessory.

Do I have an xSystem 1.0 (pump) or an xSystem 2.0 / 3.0 (gravity tank with solenoid valve)?

xSystem 1.0: serial number lower than X-009254

xSystem 1.0: in improved housing, X-009255 to X-010400

xSystem 2.0: serial number X-010401 - X-021209

xSystem 3.0: X-021210+

What are the differences between the Scottoiler xSystem v3.0 and the xSystem v2.0?

  • The exterior housing is more robust.
  • The inner seals are improved to prevent leaks
  • Can be used with electric bikes/scooters
  • The unit retains its settings when unpowered. It can be used with a power distribution hub such as the Thunderbox or connected to a key/ignition-switched supply.
  • Faster response to the flowrate buttons
  • Greatly reduced power consumption for both normal and Standby operation

How does the Scottoiler xSystem v3.0 work?

The reservoir contains a solenoid valve which opens regularly to allow the oil to flow to the chain. The frequency and duration of the opening is set by the flow rate, and automatically takes account of the ambient temperature to keep the flow rate regular in different climates where the viscosity of the oil may change with temperature.

The xSystem v3.0 is not a pump, it is gravity-fed as the vSystem, but uses a solenoid valve to stop the flow instead of the vSystem vacuum-operated valve.

Do I need extra parts to fit to my bike?

No. The xSystem is universal since it does not require any connection to the engine (like the vSystem) and has an adaptable support for the oil dispenser.

Will the xSystem drain my battery?

The Standby Mode current drain is less than most alarms. If the bike is not to be used for a month or so, it is recommended to disconnect the battery in any case.

Current consumption:

when the reservoir/solenoid is active/allowing oil flow: 108mA

on standby: 0.087mA

switched off: <4µA

Can I connect it to a key-switched supply instead of direct to the battery?

Yes, the tank will resume oiling automatically and remembers the previous settings.

Can I extend the range of the xSystem with the HCR Magnum/Traveller additional tanks?

The HCR Magnum (that installs behind the number plate) is not compatible with the xSystem.

The Traveller can be used with the xSystem.

Can I use the Scorpion Dual Injector with the xSystem?

The Scorpion can be added to any of the Scottoiler systems, it fits most swingarms.
