No it does not! One word will sum this up> BLOW BY! okay maybe two:bonk:
How many miles? Is it original top end? :bonk:

I thought over-filling them with oil would cause this as well. Are you sure that the oil level is correct as per the proper methods in the Honda Service Manual?

Revving the crap out of it will also caluse the breather to blow oil out.

Thats why baja 600s had oil recirculation bottles.

nothing more than quarter throttle so im not sure but i braked pretty hard the other day and it blew out of there too so im thinking there might be something wrong with the oil tank in the frame isnt there some sort of valve to keep that from happening
