I'm trying to install the Scottoiler VSystem but I have no idea how to remove the vacuum tube connection. I'm not entirely sure I'm even looking at the right part honestly. Really could use some help so I don't do something stupid.

From the right side of the bike, is it that sucker I'm supposed to take off? I'm assuming that's the throttle body, but I'm also terrible at figuring out what the service manual is showing. Excuse the green light I used :p

Aite, and that's why I ask before doing anything drastic. I think this may have to wait until next weekend now. I have no idea where the intake is either. I've never really done much beyond oil changes on a bike.

Put down the side cutters and step away from the bike!

Keep your hands up, up where we can see them!!!

:D

You are going to need a buddy that is handy with bikes, you have to get the tank and fairings off to access any vac lines.

He just needs a signal to activate the scott-oiler.

He won't get it from the starter wire but he wouldn't need to lube the chain if he spliced into that anyway. :eek:

I find that completely ignoring the chain except for washing it now and then is plenty but some must fiddle and fling lubricants all over their bikes? :cool:

If you get down to the bare tank, remove the 2 rear bolts and you can lift the rear up and prop it on a scrap of 1X4 wood. Don't pull it so hard up that you stress the hoses/wires.

Then you can probably sneak in and get it done, but be sure you have a vac line before cutting! CB might have a pic handy, he was in there messing around recently.

Does the vac line absolutely have to cut on the 300? Their site actually has instructions for a FI Ninja 250R and, assuming the 300 isn't too different from that, they say to just remove the rubber bung, then put the L-shaped rubber piece on the spigot. I have also heard it's a pain to remove the rubber bung though.

The kit comes with pretty much all the connections for any possiblity so I could cut it. I just figure if I need to go back to stock for some reason then not cutting would be better. I may end up cutting anyway if getting the rubber bung off proves to be too much of a pain in the ass.
