But I'm still having oil creep up into the air box and I've been meticulous at making sure the oil level is correct on service. Typically this only happens when I'm riding to work and back, approximately 30 miles each way at about 70 mph.
I'm really forming the opinion that there is a minor breathing problem with the engine on these bikes. Really just an annoyance, but still there. I have checked the breather hoses and everything is fine there.
To tie this together with the originator's problem. I think there is something to high RPM running that causes pressure to build up in the crankcase or (not as likely) build up a vacuum in the air box. My experience is that you typically run high RPM on the sand as well.
Has anyone had any similar experiences with their late model WR? It's driving me a little nuts, but only because I can't figure it out. I'm going to check for posts from guys running Baja and see if there is any info there.
