Mounting oil tank on the bottom of the down tube. Is it OK
I'm limited in the places I can mount my oil tank. Is the bottom of the down tube ok since it's lower than the engine

Doesn't sound good does it? That is a gravity fed system..

I've seen a few bikes with it mounted that way. Bourget rubs it through their frame also.
It makes sense to have it above the engine but doesn't the pump push it through.

top oil level of the tank needs to be higher than the pump inlet. You need to gravity feed to the pump or it cavitates.
