White leak from the breather hose
Posted April 21, 2003 - 01:44 PM
I was riding with my friend today and I remarked that when I was stopping the bike, several (5 to 10 ) white oily drops were comming out from the head hose breather (I don't know if I use the corrext english words...you know the big hose that gets out of the cam cover and ends under the flywheel cover on the left side of the bike).
I've never seen the bike doing that before .
We checked the oil and everything was normal and the rads are still full.
What is that? What happened?

Do you mean that I finally been able to give it a punch
Just quit my old kdx 200 last fall and bought my 426. I have a lot of training to do just to bring this new bike to one third of its limit.
But hey, I'm comming!
Thanks for the motivation

Basically, it is normal, and nothing to worry about... Just don't try to kick start your bike with the vent tube underwater in a creek crossing... it will suck water into your cases...
Still coming downunder?

Yeah, its normal, I stuck some old filter material from an air condidtioner up there to try and keep dust and water out. I used to just shove a cigarette but up there but I think the sponge like filter material might breath a bit better
