Anybody out there who has done a track day with Scott Oiler on board. As a new convert to the oiler, am wondering if anybody sets it up differently for track time. The track day is at Phillip Island and the second corner is a tricky double apex left hander which will have me hard over on the section of tire that cops any oil fling from the chain. Would hate to bin it on the second corner !!

Sorry I don't have one but how about disconnecting it for the trackday???
Surely this just means taking the vacuum tube off and of course rebunging up the hole to keep the bike running correctly.

Kerry, you don't need to disconnect it. Just turn it down to it's lowest setting which is effectively 'off'.
I've probably been doing track days for the last two years, all of my bikes have Scottoilers, and I've never had any kind of problem.

The hamster is right! Just turn it down to it's lowest setting. My Falco had no problems with the scottoiler at Rockingham!

Turn it down. Now you tell me!
I figure if it's set up right for the road, why shouldn't it be for the track?
A track day at Phillip Island. Only in our dreams for most of us. Lucky b*stard.
Just don't get a corner named after you. Didn't bring Mighty Mick any luck when they did.

Thanks guys ... figured that would be the way I would go but thought I would check in anyway. All I need now is fine weather ... Phillip Island is notorious for southern ocean squals blowing up out of nowhere.

I did the same as Bef and left is at its normal setting. You could also turn it right up so that you can see the line you took on the previous lap (before falling off)

If it is putting oil on the tyre then it is set up wrong!
