There has been several approaches to this problem:

1 - install a PVC valve in the line to ensure high pressure blows out, but a vacuum (as the engine is kicked over) shuts the check valve.

2 - Re-route the head vent. I have mine re-routed up behind the # plate/headlight. I used a (1/2"?) piece of clear, flexible tygon tubing. I stuck in a piece of oiled foam into the tygon to allow some filtering action. The problem w/ this is IF you get water into the hose, it has a gravity fed, clear shot into your engine.

3 - the combination of the first two using a T fitting, w/ the T being at the lowest point. This will allow drainage out of the tube out the PVC valve, while allowing any air the engine needs to be drawn in through the high vent.

4 - if you run the vent into your airbox, definitely use a filter for the end of it. Eric Gorr DOES use this method in his approach to this problem.

I DO have damage to my cylinder from this exact issue.
