The breather system ends there and the oil mist should be sucked into the engine intake and burned. Are you having excess oil in the bretaher OR ??????????????

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: 77 harley sportster is spitting oil out of the cam cover breather

because it is breathing too heavy.
The reason into fixing that is to run a hose from the breather to a tin with a lid and run another hose from the tin the the air filter.

SOURCE: there is oil coming into the air breather on a harley 883

This is normal, the sportsters vents oil out of the air breather. You can lesson the amount of oil by running the oil a little low, I run mine with the oil mid way between the lines on the dip stick.

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 2000 wide glide Harley that keeps spitting oil out the vents


As I live and breathe how ya doing Leighanne if oil leaking from your air cleaner it is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For whatever reason, the breather system is not separating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more expensive ones. First, make sure your breather hoses are not dry and cracked if they are ok you can start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when oil is at operating temp.
2. Run oil breather lines from the head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under the frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump.
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate.

There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more expensive ones. First, make sure your breather hoses are not dry and cracked if they are ok you can start by trying the following:

I have a 2012 harley and im getting oil blowing into my air breather how do i find wear its leaking


The oil breather/separation system ends up in the induction pipe throat and the oil mist that does not get eliminated in the breather process is then sucked into the induction system and burnt n the engine. If your oil level is too high or if the breather system is defective this will cause excessive oil to end up in the air cleaner area. If the tubes etc that direct the oil into the induction system throat are missing or defective this would also add to or cause an excessive oil in the breather area problem.

77 harley sportster is spitting oil out of the cam cover breather


You may have a broken or ruptured hose that is causing the oil to leak. You will need the hose fixed and some more oil put in.

Pulling oil through carb breather


By "pulling oil through the carb breather" I assume you mean air breather? The solution to that is to buy an aftermarket "horseshoe" breather. Check Drag Specialties, V Twin Products, etc.

Check the breather ports on the heads. If they are not venting correctly, partially plugged, or you don't have a large enough diameter tubing for the ventilation it will cause this.
