Since I re routed the breather hose up to the bed near my snorkel I've noticed that it blows smoke out of it.  It's not much, and it wasn't enough to be visible on video, but I never noticed that before.  Thoughts????

Re: should you see smoke coming out of the crank case breather?

The crankcase vent does just that, vents all crankcase gasses. These gasses are what gets by the rings and valve seals so yes, there will be some even on a new engine...much more on old ones. That's why they originally ported them into the airbox, so they will be sucked in and burned. If you could rig it so it enters the intake snorkel before the filter, might be more like factory.

Thanks.  I kinda thought that, but just didn't think it would be that noticeable.  I don't mind it, and it goes away once warmed up.  Just had to make sure, thanks!@
