Re: Where to mount Scottoiler on Trophy? [1 Attachment]
Congratulations on making a great choice of bike, you won't regret your decision, the only problem is deciding whether to look at it or ride it!
The rear fender is a convenient location but I would recommend keeping the vacuum line as short as possible as we all know what could happen if the hose was to rub through somewhere along its journey causing a cylinder to run lean, I would much rather this happened to the oil delivery pipe instead!
My other criterion was to fit in a location that was discreet but easily visible, this was my choice - see photo.
Good luck with the rest of the refurbishment and happy riding

Just purchased a 1997
Trophy this summer. It's in beautiful cosmetic
condition but needed a little TLC mechanically. Cleaned
and synchronized the carbs and now she purrs (like a diesel
truck). I'm currently replacing the chain, sprockets,
and rear brake pads and decided to go ahead and add a vacuum
Scottoiler. No issues getting vacuum off the carbs but
trying to decide where to mount the oiler (RMV) on the bike.
I'm sure some of you are running Scottoilers so I
thought I'd ask for
