SOURCE: oil blow out the breather

An overfull oil tank will do it. Even if not overfull just about all harley's will blow oil out the air filter. Unless there is a bunch of oil coming out, it's not a problem What I've found is that the air filter eventually gets saturated and then starts to leak through. The level in the oil tank doesn't seem to matter. If you change the air filter the problem goes away, until the new one gets saturated and then it starts all over again. My plan is to get a K&N air filter, which you can clean yourself and save having to buy a new air filter every 4,000 miles or so.

SOURCE: oil blow out the breather

This is a common problem on all sportsters, they have an oil blow by that dumps it into the air filter. I have found that if I run about a half quart low the problem goes away.

SOURCE: oil leaks from breather box

From your brief description It sounds like you are experiencing Crank Case pressure build up.
I presume your ZZR is of High mileage or possibly previous owners havn't serviced it regularly.
The problem being the compression Piston Rings wear and allow Blow Back gasses into the crank case there by building up pressure, this in turn sends an oil film up the breather tube to your air box resulting in your problem.
You could try an oil & filter change (Synthetic) Top jolly with maybe an additive plus similar for the fuel i.e. Red-Ex or similar, it may help but I doubt a cure.
If you want you could extend the breather pipe away from the box into a drip can or similar, be sure to filter it as you don't want to get contamination down in the cases.
Hope this sorts it for you?

Thank You! & Good Luck.

SOURCE: 89 Harley FLTCU oil coming from the crankcase breather tube and

This is an age old problem for the Harley engine. In you 89 model, the crankcase breaths from behind the oil pump through a tube that runs to the backside of the air filter assembly. Most people that I know, simply remove the tube coming up to the air filter and block the hole in the air filter assembly backing plate. At the breather, they run a short hose to just behind the transmission and cut it off there. This is similar to the earlier Shovelhead engine and the way it breathes. In 1994, Harley went to the "head breather system" which was better but it still gets oil into the air filter assembly.

There is one thing I saw on the aftermarket assessories market once called a "CatchCan". The breather tube ran to it and it seperated the oil from the air and the held it in a small container to be emptied on a regular basis. I have never used one nor have I ever seen one so all I can tell you is what the book said. Matter of fact, I cannot remember where I saw it now. Custom Chorme catalog, maybe. Good Luck, Steve

I have a gs susuki gl 1982 driveshaft that holds 90 weight gear oil thats leaking out of the side by the gear shifter cover is there a seal that can be replaced or does it have a crack in the motor ca

Think the gear change end is not 90 grade oil ,it is 20/50. The bevel drive end is 90 but the motor is 20/50. And there is a seal in the case, unless you have a crack somewhere, depends where the leak is coming from.

White smoke exhaust

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
2. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
3. Restricted breather operation.
4. Restricted oil filter.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides are worn and or seals worn, crushed, missing, or have come of guide and is pumping oil through the valve guide.
7. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump at crankcase junction (also results in poor engine performance). For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

I have a problem with oil gushing out of the breather box of my sons susuki 160 2 wheel drive atv. can any one help.?any suggestions ?>it is an older atv with alot of miles .

If it has not been over filled with oil the it will most likely be to much blow by caused by the compression rings wearing out.
Do a compression test and check against the acceptable figures from your manual or a dealer.
If the compression is to low you will need to do a top end rebuild.

Wha kind of tail section will fit a 1995 suzuki rf 900 with single seat and cowl. I hate the banana seat for 2.

Suzuki used to sell a cover for this bike which covered the other section. Otherwise there are numerous aftermarket manufacturers. But,the cheapest way will be to take it to a leather worker for remodeling or commision a fibreglass piece.
