Re: crankcase breather tube with small air filter
Most sanctioned race organizations and some track days require that the crankcase breather be vented to some form of catch tank...be it the airbox or a separate container, and that venting to atmospheric with a filter and a hose is not adequate. Remember, it is about the safety of others and YOU that these rules are written. Same reason real race lower fairings are one piece and must be capable of containing several quarts of oil. I only bring this up since you are "LEANING" towards the track and less street.
You can discount this comment and reply that you're not racing and the track day organizer doesn't check this.......but remember that the intent of the rules is safety, both yours and others. Who wants to have their day put to an end and a damaged bike and/or body because someone else puked oil out the crankcase breather....you think a filter is going to stop it? A little oil in your airbox never hurt anything, really. Imagine that potentially you are on the receiving end of this scenario....
Think about it, man.
