Hi,

I am assuming it has alot of blow by to..if your loosing a lot of oil and it is coming out of your breather tube the engine has more than likely broken rings on the piston.. I know thats not the answer you where hoping to hear but 98% of the time when that occur that is the cause.. Also that the piping off of your trubo and ck to make sure your not loosing oil there..

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for the response!!

    I have not confirmed How old this Bike is and i have offered you a Generic solution what i have found. Yes, it can be the case.In case, if it's broken or not there, you would see the leak,

    On 70% cases, it is either due to engine or Carb. float valve problems.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks.

If you are referring to the milky brown like stuff in the tube you just let it drain. It is a combination of oil mist and moisture.

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.

800 vs carb overflows out breather tube when engine is started and it will not stop. Had both carbs rebuilt and when re-installed this problem started.


Sticky float valve. Tap gently on the side of the bowl with the handle of a screw driver. If it continues, they'll have to be popped off and the floats reseated.

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

Cars gas tank


the breather tube for the tank might be clogged not letting the air out. so when you fill the tank the fill cant get in fast enough b/c the air is not excaping. check the breather tube for kinks or bends. or even blockage of somekind

Oil on breather tubes.


Not sure how many miles you have but oil on breather tubes (depending on how much) is normal the problem is when you have excessive blowby and high oil consumption. When was the top end done last... If never, it's due....

I have a 2003 buell and the crankase breather tube has come lose


The breather tubes on a stock bike go from the top of the engine heads (the PCV valves), and the other end goes into the lower airbox cover. You will see two holes in this lower airbox for the breather hoses.
While many factors can cause your issue with the missing and spudder, the breather can contribute too.
