Hi Erik
A famous Scott rider and engineer Clive Waye, used to race his Scott on methanol with Castrol R castor oil.
He had oil cups on the crankcase and before each race he squirted in some oil from an oil can to keep the spring loaded metal to metal sealing glands and main bearing rollers lubricated.
I use Petroil but with a dripp feed to the two crancase feed connections to be sure to lubricate the main bearings and seals.
I am sure that you would find the Scott experience very rewarding
Kind Regards
