KTM 950 Scottoiler Question
I had a 990 Adventure until I had a crash and the bike was a write off. Anyway I took some of the trinkets that I had installed on the bike. One of them was the Scottoiler.
When I installed the scottoiler on the 990 I fitted the brass spigot on the right hand side of the engine and everything worked nicely. Since the accident I decided to buy a 950 Adventure but when I came to fit the scottoiler I found on the right hand side of the engine some piping already connected there, which confused me as this was not the case on the 990. I looked on the left hand side of the engine and there seems to be a nut without any piping connected to it, I was wondering if I can use this to connect to the scottoiler?
This is the right hand side of the engine.
This is the left hand side of the engine.
Any help would be appreciated, for those with 950A's and scottoilers where did you connect the vaccum tubing and valve on the engine?

I believe what you are looking at is the vacuum tube that is used to balance the carbs (I think). There is one at the base of each carb body.

One side is used to balance the carbs, the other side is where the charcoal canister used to connect to the engine before the canisterectomy was done. I don't know enough about those to tell how they work, but if it runs off of a vacuum then you pull one of the bolts out, thread the stock brass spigot looking piece back in, and connect it to the Scottoiler.
