    Thanks for the info. The bike only has 13k miles on it. I thought that might be the case.

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.

2005 Honda Unicorn oil leaking from crankcase breather tube


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/system overfilled.
2. Faulty breather valve.
3. Engine breather hose bent, pinched, kinked etc.
4. Air filter has too much "pre-oil".
5. Crankshaft seal failure allowing transmission fluid to migrate.
6. Blow by drain tube cracked/split or filled to capacity.

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.

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

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.
