Scottoiler Vsystem for Versys
« on: November 25, 2017, 12:35:28 PM »
Hi all
I am about to install the Vsystem on my Versys 1000 2017 and wondered wheres the best place to mount the resrviour for the oil. It says to install it in the most upright position as possible but all the blurb shows it under the seat almost horizontal, which to me, as the feed is central to the cylinder, would only mean half the capacity would be used. Any ideas folks? where it might be mounted more vertical? Thanks

I had the same issues and in the end mounted it just below the seat on the left side. There is no where else near vertical unless you want to mount it to the side box brackets.

Since its in such a recline, you wont lose much actually. Estimate I lose around 12% from full capacity.

For me the worst part is bending the metal mount placed on the hub. Its a pain to get it into position and fine tuning the resting place on the sprocket.

+1 for mounting as above just below the seat as it means you can adjust the flow without removing the seat, but I mounted the nozzle on mine using the rear chainguard bolt to the inside of the swingarm keeping it a bit neater IMHO.

Some pics for your reference.





That mount is the difficult one. The tube has to bend and might kink and leak. It happened to me before because of the acute angle. Furthermore our swing arm is not square and thus cant be run directly under.

I also bought the touring reservoir & mounted it on that behind the number plate. Easy to get to & with the extra capacity rarely needs refilling.

Sorted thanks. Managed to get it neatly out of the way under the seat. Didn't have any problem with the jet mount myself as angled it not so straight as in the above pictures. Didn't want it externally mounted as looked to ugly and would have made it easily nickable.

Interesting, I've run scotoilers on Mk 1 DL650's as they are easy to pick up the vacuum feed. where do you pick up the vacuum on the Versys 1k?
