You blew that. We were trying to ignore him.

The big one's the breather, the little one is the pressure balance vent for the oil tank.

What's your BAL today, gd?

That is the way it is on mine, one the oil blowoff and other sparkplug.

I have had oil come out of that blowoff hose when the bike was new and I did not lay it over eather. I have not seen it since then though. Hope that is normal.

Yours is an '06. The pressure balance line was moved off of the cam cover. '05 and earlier had two HOSES coming from the cam box.

so i shouldnt hook that line up to my intake?

GD, some will route the breather tube to the airbox if this is what you are trying to convey?

I would only do it if you ride in deep water alot(water can be sucked into the motor) or have a problem in sand dunes sucking sand up your pipe....into your motor.

Do not use it for a beer funnel.......not good :excuseme:
