Crankcase Breather--I should have done this a year ago
Posted July 09, 2000 - 11:14 AM
I removed the stock crankcase breather hose and using a hose clamp attached the flexibel PVC to the top of the cam cover where the stock hose attached, then ran the tube up the left side of the frame and terminated it behind the headlight / number plate. I had to sligtly rotate one of the hose clamps holing the left radiator crossover tube but no big deal. I then checked out the lock to lock steering action and cut the hose to length so it stayed behing the Number plate area as the front end is turned. I then attached the UNI filter using a hose clamp and its done. I ended up using 20" of flexible PVE hose.
No more dripping, no worries about sucking water in the hose if starting the bike in a stream unless it is over the bars!!
Fired the bike up went out for a 55 mile loop everthing worked great. Could not be happer just should have done it a year ago, guess I was being lazy every owner should do something like this for the stock breather hose.
Remember my bike is dual sported so I do not have the stock voltage regulator on the frame this may be a problem for routing clearence but I do not think so.

Thanks for the tip on posible oil getting up to the breather filter. I will keep an eye out for it. I did do power runs through max rpm and tried to get the oil up to the filter. However, on post ride inspection I saw none. I will keep you observations in mind and if a problem come up with another solution.
