Wr 426 breather hose

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys sorry to flog a dead horse. I know its normal for my 426 to leak a bit of oil out of the breather hose, but how much is normal? After every ride, oil is scattered all around the back rim. Seems like im going through a bit of oil, not to mention the fact that it looks bad and Im tired of wiping it up every time I take it for a spin.

Anyway let me know what u guys think.

Cheers

a breather that is excessive is usually a early waring of a worn piston/rings...its increased blowby into the case. Check to see if you get oil smoke at wot.

My 02 leaks just enough to make the skid plate wet and attract dirt :excuseme: but not enough to cause me to add oil between changes. You can route it to the air box or up in front of the gas tank with a waterproof filter on it. I've even read where some have extended it back so the drips oil the chain.

WOT-wide open throttle. Too much oil, even a little bit too much, in the crankcase will cause a lot of breather splooge.

My thoughts also. I put a barbed end, PVC 90 deg fitting on mine and it forces the oil straight down. It rests against the edge of the skid plate and it stays in place.
