Deep sumps are to keep the pickup in the oil at all times even when the front end is way off the ground - I don't think it'll have any effect on sending oil out the crankcase breather. An aftermarket tail-mounted breather box will keep oil out of the airbox but it's expensive probably hard to find nowadays, and forces you to reroute a lot of wiring as well as relocate your computer box. Simpler to just do fewer and smaller wheelies,,,

When the tube coming from the engine to the air cleaner got disconnected, large amounts of oil were ejected. Is this because it was disconnected or is the crankcase breather defective?


check for excessive oil in the sump
the hose allows compression build up in the sump to escape to the air cleaner so the valve (????) is operational

Why does my 426 dump the entire contents of the oil tank out the breather?

Pressurized crankcase ?


Yes, more than likely the crankcase is being pressurized.

The usual cause is worn piston rings/bores. As the piston moves up on the compression stroke the air/gases are forced downwards into the crankcase. These pressurized gases try and escape to the atmosphere any way they can - either from the rocker cover, the oil-dipstick tube or through the rubber seal on the oil filter.

If there's an 'oil breather' on your engine, try cleaning it out. But .. the usual cause is a worn engine

Breather tube throwing oil into carb


Oil coming via the engine breather can mean a worn engine, it could be as simple as an over filled sump, or the breather valve itself is not working, the breather valve allows the crankcase pressure out of the engine.

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

Oil leak


and with the V50 I thought I'd achieved my ambition. It was oiltight to begin with but not long after I'd done a bit of maintenance (oil and air filter change) I started noticing drips underneath - coming from the pipe that dangles from the air filter unit (yes it still has the original [expletive-deleted] item). For a while I ignored it as there were so many other jobs needing to be sorted, but it has just got worse. After a long trip, parking it is embarrassing - especially as everyone knows that Guzzis are oiltight . . . Now it seems to me that the oil could have come from one of three places - the crankcase, or either of the rocker boxes, as all of their breather pipes go to the underside of the air filter chamber. I therefore detached the existing pipes to the rockerboxes, stopped up their ends, and ran new breather pipes from the rockerboxes to vent under the bike. I reckoned that, with three pipes dangling underneath (Sherlock Holmes' three-pipe problem?), I should be able to see which part of the machine was responsible. With me so far? Did a 21-mile trip this morning, put it back up on its stand and waited. Result - oil drips from all three pipes! Thinks: when bought, the oil level was only just above minimum on the dipstick. When I changed the oil, I filled it to the max level - and someone has suggested that this is the cause of the problem. I therefore drained some oil out, and it's now at the half-way mark though without any effect on the oil drips. I'm reluctant to drain more, though that might be the next step. If it does effect a cure, would that point to some other, underlying problem? Any ideas or suggestions welcome, as at the moment this machine is not living up to the Guzzi reputation.,The breather system on the V50 works in a peculiar way. The two pipes from the rocker covers are the main engine breathers. They go into a chamber in the air filter housing, and the tube from there to the crankcase is actually a return pipe, to get the oil recovered from the breather back into the sump. On mine, I am sure the breather then goes into the air box behind the carbs, and I didn't think I had another pipe dangling down. Certainly too much oil in the sump can cause problems in most Guzzis.,,,
