Question about 1985 Yamaha XJ 700 X Maxim
At the back of the crank case there is a puck looking thing with nothing inside of it and it's connected to the bottom of the air box. It sometimes works fine and sometimes it pukes oil...Found a plugged crank case vent tube, but, no difference... Just kicking over can make it puke oil. The dipstick is up by the handle bars and the level fluxuates up and down depending on if it is puking or not. Runs good when it does run, decent compression,, can't remember the psi though..Can't find any info in the book about oil in frame system. I even took it to 4 seasons,,Guy thought it was valve guides..or rings... Is there a valve I don't know about? Is there a website that explains the principals of it's opperation?
Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated..
P.s. just ignore the xj700 maxim...
You have to much oil in your carter.
