Is anyone re-routing the cylinder head breather hose?

There is an even better mod involving a re-route to the airbox, just make sure you loosen a screw or put in a drain hole in case you get some water in there as well!
(I just shortened mine for now.)

The breather will SUCK water & crud if you try and start while the breather hose is submerged.
When running it suck/blows repeatedly a small amount very fast. Oil foam is known to drip in varying quantities.
- many just reroute the thing upwards
- many also put a T joint just above the head cover and route 1 pipe to the airbox and leave the original one where it is. If the bottom one is submerged the top one can breathe. Some worry about excessive oil getting into the airbox. I have this and have 0.
- many put bits of foam in the pipes to stop crud getting in them.
- also to do....route 2 of the four carb breathers to your air box as these have been known to suck water into the carb when doing a submerged start.
There are a number of threads expounding the virtue (or not) of above and more. Do a search on 'breather' > 1 year and you will likely get more than you need.
