SOURCE: my 110 revtech is not charging
Check across the battery with the engine running at high idle with a FULLY CHARGED battery in the bike. You should read 14.5 - 15.0 volts DC.
If not, pull the plug where the voltage regulator plugs into the engine. With the engine running, check for voltage between the two pins or sockets in the plug in the engine. Put the red lead of your meter in or on one pin or socket, the black in or on the other socket or pin. With your voltmeter set to the 50 volt AC range, you should read about 30 volts or more. The voltage coming out of the stator is AC since your bike is equipped with an alternator. If you read this much voltage, the stator is good. If you read less or no voltage, your stator is bad.
Now, check to make sure your voltage regulator is grounded. That's why you usually find a star washer between the voltage regulator body and the frame on most bikes. The star washer will dig into each piece insuring a good ground. If the ground checks good inspect the pigtail coming from the regulator going to the engine. I've seen the wire inside the insulation of the wires break. Also check the large single wire that comes from the regulator and make sure it goes either directly to the battery positive side or to the connection where the battery cable connects to the starter. If everything checks good and looks good, the regulator is probably bad.
Hope this helps.

Your RevTech engine is a copy of an H-D Evolution engine. Just as with the Harley engine, it vents it's crankcase pressure through ports in the heads. There are "umbrella valves" made of rubber in the center section of the rocker box covers. These valves are made of a rubber like material and they will harden with repeated heating and cooling. If they get hard enough, they may not work as well as they should. This system does a fair job of removing the oil mist from the exhausted air but there is still some oil left in it. This oil will accumulate in the breather and drip out. You must clean the inside of the air breather occasionally to prevent this. However, if too much oil is coming out, you may have too much blow by on the rings or your breather gear in the cam chest may not be doing as it should. Harley uses a plastic breather gear and I've seen them break a tooth and stop turning. I don't know if RevTech uses a plastic gear or a metal gear. It depends on how much oil is coming out of the breather as to whether or not you have a problem. There are kits available aftermarket to reroute this vented air pressure outside of the air cleaner.
