Scottoil comes in 2 different forms: Traditional Blue Scottoil and High Temperature Red Scottoil.

What’s the difference?

The two oils both have the same chemical make up although the High Temperature Oil is more viscous and therefore slightly thicker, meaning it will flow more slowly in higher temperatures than the traditional blue Scottoil. Other than that, they’re the same and can even be mixed, so if you’re changing over from one oil to the other there’s no need to drain one out and start again, they’ll blend, saving you waste.

Which one do you need?

Your choice of oils is dependent on the general riding temperatures you usually experience. Between 0–20 ºC (32-68 ºF) we would recommend Traditional Blue Scottoil. For higher ambient temperatures, go for the red as it will be a much better lubricant on the chain at those temperatures and will be easy to regulate through the vacuum operated systems too. The Red Oil has an operating range of 20-40 ºC (68-104 ºF).

In some cases we would recommend you use High Temperature Scottoil if your reservoir is located near to a constant heat source such as the engine as this will warm the oil in the reservoir to the operating range more suited to the red oil.
