Default Scottoiler tip location?

Hi all.
I've had a little search but couldn't find what I was looking for.
I have recently acquired a used Scottoiler with a dual injector/tip attached to dispence the oil onto the chain.
I have concluded that I'm going to locate the oiler behind the black infill under the seat. Having seen the photos in the 'how to' section I was wondering if it's worth running the dispensing tube down the swingarm or if I could in some way attach the dual tip near the front sprocket. I'll be investigating tomorrow (saturday) but keeping it all out of the way seems like a good idea in my book.
Cheers.

General consensus seems to be to point the oiler to the rear sprocket,and that the dual sided version is a bit of a pain.The single one is quite adequate.

I like the dual sided oiler. It is more rigid and easier to mount. Perhaps it is me being a pain though!

No it's not.

The single one keeps the one side nicely clean and lubes both sides but then you have to keep the other side clean.
Use the dual injector and both sides stay clean, more importantly it doesn't rust on that side!

The bike i have just bought has the single tip scottoiler i believe the reservoir is located in the position you have mentioned ( behind a little black triangle ) and the delivery tube runs down the swingarm and despenses ontop of the rear sprocket. It would be interesting to see if you could keep the tube better hiddin as i think it looks a little crude zip tied down the length of the swingarm.

cheers mick

Throw the dual injector in the bin, the single works perfectly and is easier to fit.
The dual injector exists only to enable sales of Scottoilers to people who don't know how a Scottoiler works or how a chain is constructed.

If one side of your chain is going rusty then you're not using enough oil, or are pointing the delivery pipe at your face rather than the chain.

I would fit a single injector near the rear sprocket as per normal use, I've seen some done on the front sprocket and the higher rpm seems to fling a lot, so you need to use much more oil to get enough on the chain.
