I have a Scottoiler on mine.

Mounted it under the seat, and then ran it now the frame and drilled the chain guard and poked it through.

Yep, put a Scott oiler on. Bit of a bummer about the oil on the bike, but hey oil protects! I just love how the chain stays clean & lubricated. Friends who have them rave about the extended chain life!

Was it much hassle fitting the vacuum pipe?

I fitted my Scottoiler reservoir behind the riders left footpeg bracket and routed the feed pipe around the chain guard with no probs - it took a fair bit of time to get to the vacuum take off, but did prove to give an opportunity to clean a few more nooks and crannies with the bodywork off!

All in all a day's job with plenty of tea breaks and chatting to the neighbours!

Similar experience here. I fitted the Scott v system myself and to locate the vacuum took about 2 hours. I've removed so many panels and tank and air box my hands hurt.

The reservoir is under passenger seat and loosely angled next to the tool bag. Chain is looking shiny and I've done 600 miles without doing anything to the chain. It's brilliant!

However you may need to manually lube the chain after riding in heavy rain. I noticed how dry the chain became after torrential downpour and spots of surface rust.
