The Scottoiler "Traveller" Expansion bag is an additional oil reservoir that increases the capacity of any Scottoiler system (vSystem / xSystem / eSystem) by up to 200ml. This increases the distance between refills by around 4000km (depending on riding conditions).
The bag is a flexible design, allowing it to be installed in almost any space using only tie-wraps, and is easily refilled due to the wide filler/breather cap.
Despite the name, the “Traveller” is not intended just for those long-distance riders who need a larger capacity to avoid carrying extra oil, but for daily users who want a larger capacity to avoid the need to refill often.
The “Traveller” is a replacement for the Scottoiler Lube Tube, which is currently on special offer.
- Adds around 4000km to the distance between refills.
- Adaptable shape for easy installation on sports bikes.
- Compatible with any Scottoiler chain oiling system.
The “Traveller” bag may be mounted anywhere on the motorcycle. It does not have to be close to the main Scottoiler reservoir/pump, but it should not be more than 30cm higher (or it could force oil through the system), or 20cm lower (where the main tank may not be able to draw the oil up).
The “Traveller” syphon tube connects to the Scottoiler main reservoir via an adapter (vSystem/eSystem or xSystem) which replaces the standard breather cap on the main system.

"Scottoil" oil types
You should use only the Scottoil oils since the system is a precision device, designed to work with the viscosities of the Scottoiler mineral oils, in vrey small quantities, whether blue oil (northern European climate) or red oil (denser for hotter climates).
Scottoil oil is a pure mineral oil with no additives that may harm the chain O-rings and no "tack" additives that stick road dirt to the chain.
There are two types of oil available: blue or red.
The blue oil is appropriate for northern european climates(0-20°C).
It can be used all year round but during the higher summer temperatures the flow rate may have to be reduced due to the lower viscosity of the oil.
The red oil has a higher viscosity for use in warmer climates (20°-40°).
It can be used all year round but in the lower winter temperatures the flow rate will have to be increased to compensate,
In northern Spain and Galicia we recommend the blue oil, for southern Spain/Canary Islands the red oil is more suitable all year round.
Due to the extremes of temperature that many parts of Spain experience during the year, many people opt to change the oil during the year when appropriate. The two types can be mixed but may separate due to the different viscosities so its better to change oils when the tank is nearly empty.
In truth the red oil was launched some years ago when Scottoilers were first being exported and were delivering too much oil on the minimum setting. The systems are now much improved and the flow rate can be precisely controlled, rendering the choice of oil far less important.
