Any tips on stopping this or why it's occurring??Two questions 1.) How full is your crankcase with oil? In the middle of the window? Higher? Remember look when the bike is upright 2.) Do you spend much time at high RPMs?,

John Deere LT 155, why are small amounts of oil dripping into the carburetor air intake thru he oil breather hose connected to that air intake chamber

the breather hose is the means of allowing the compression by pass gasses to not build up pressure in the sump and it exits into the air inlet system near the air cleaner
for oil to be dripping there indicates
1--excessive oil in the sump
2-- worn rings allowing excessive blow by and boiling the sump oil
3-- incorrect oil used in the sump ( too thin) try a 30w -50 grade

2006 suzuki vinson 500 5speed oil in breather box

A small amount is ok. You have a crankcase breather hose that vents into air box. Large amounts are BAD. Check engine oil level.

Is it normal to leak Oil out of a hose

If the hose is an engine breather hose from the crank case, it could be ok but depends on how much, if a breather is choked up or rings worn this can cause it, too much back pressure, compression test it, check any filters not the engine oil filter though.

Breather hose covered in black oil what can caurse this breather was replaced 5 months ago now oil hose soaked in oil is it serious its a landy 1994 disco

Any oil leak should be attended to ASAP for obvious reasons... could be a split hose or excessive crank case pressure. If the oil loss is minimal then no need to panic but I would get it looked at by a Land Rover speciallist.

What causes big oil leaks on the ground from a 2003 triumph speedmaster. I go for a ride and then park the bike, later there is a pool of oil on the ground. It seems to be coming from one of the overflow...

yh thats the breather pipe they mostly leak because there is too much oil in the crank case or compression is passing the rings are causing pressure on the oil so it gets forced out the breather

Oil leaking from under the seat of my Kawasaki klr250

not sure if this will help, but the crank case has a breather tube that is around that area. if the bike is on its side or has been doing wheelies, some oil can get thru the breather hose causing that problem.
