I know this will sound silly, but I can not find my crank case breather tube. Also, according to the manual,there is a storage tank for the breather tube to flow into?????

I cant find that either....................... Can someone draw me a picture???? :cheeky1:

The crankcase breather tube is on the left side right below the petcock. It runs up to the aircleaner box. On the other side of the aircleaner box another tube runs down to the catch can which is held onto the frame crossbar with a 10mm bolt. The catch can is accessable from the left side and is above the left drivers peg.

It collects moisture that condenses in the container. I take mine off once a year and dump out the water.,,

I found it, I found it................... :jumper:

Thanks for the picture :Dand all the help......

It was just what I thought, full 3/4 the way up the tube :(

So, what can I expect from emptying it??? I saw someone else on another thread say that his bike had an odor while ideling,but that he emptied the breather tube the odor went away.

Just wondering if that's a real possibility or not?????????

my friend was telling me his bike had a funny smell to it when he stopped at lights. Then after a ride one day we went back to his house where after about a half hour, we watched his dog lift his leg on the motor. Man was that funny.,,,

If liquid is that far up the tube I'm not surprised that it was running rough or at all. Put a pan underneath the bike before you pull the tube loose from the collector or you'll have a mess all over the floor. Never smelled anything with mine. It'll be a wet, oily mess of goo, slightly runny.

It does seem to idle a lot better, it was kinda misfiring at start up, but now it's all good....

I never noticed an odor with mine, maybe bcause I dont let the dogs in the garage :cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

Thanks again
