The new bike I am looking at getting has one of these pre-fitted, but I don't have a clue about it!

What stuff do you put in it, and where do you put the fluid (and how do you get it in there?)

I think it might be slightly different to yours, as it has two 'drippers' on it. (One on each side of the sproket).

Nice one! Cheers for the help man! I will have a look around at the oil you put in it!

Do you use the normal blue one, or the high temp red one?

It says the blue is for 0-20 degrees, which I guess would be ok, but the past two weeks, the temp has been more like 30 degrees!

EDIT: I have just seen the red is for 20-40 degrees, so I am going to say the blue is the one I need!

Just out of interest, the pic that shows the vacuum inlet thing, Where is this? (Is it by the carb/ injector?)

Also, do you find that your rear wheel gets govered in goo?

The vacuum nipple thing is on the throttle body. I managed to remove the little rubber cover and fit the tube to the scottoiler without removing the tank, but it was VERY fiddly and I scratched my hands up quite a bit squeezing them through the gaps! If I were doing it again, I'd take the tank off for sure.

The back wheel does get oil flung on it a fair bit, but I tend to run the oiler set to drip a bit more out than recommended since I ride in all weathers. I'd rather have a dirty back wheel than a knackered chain & sprockets though, much easier to clean a wheel! I find a quick brush with paraffin followed by a squirt of muc-off followed by a rinse with the hosepipe soon cleans the wheel up.

Yeah, I thought it might! It doesn't matter too much, as, like you say, its better to have a dirty wheel!

I'm glad I won't have to fit one! lol! Still, the bike is a Kawasakie ER6n, so, in theory, there would be more room, so it would be easier to fit! lol
