Yes,there is more you can do.Like a big bore kit,matched with some higher rpm cams, but remember this is a softail with the balancer motor so it will always steal some power away from the wheel.

What makes a 2005 Yamaha YZ 450 F Blow Oil Out The Crank Case Hose Into The Breather And White Smoke Out The Pipe Thanks


Hi, Shawn_luke_I oil level readings are taken when the engine has reached normal operating temperature and the usual suspects are:
1. Overfilled oil tank dipstick reading should at or below full.
2. If the sight glass is full you are running to much oil.
3. Excessive blowby caused by worn out piston rings.
4. Piston rings never properly seated.
5. Faulty breather valve or system.
6. Pinched or clogged breather line/hose.
7. Clogged or failed oil filter.
8. Contaminated oil dirt-rust-water etc.
9. Excessive oil foaming.
10. Wrong oil type not designed for your bike.

I agree ,I think you have a crankcase breather problem.Check the air cleaner tube that runs to the top of the motor , the vent in the head, and where the breather enters the air box is all clear.

Kazuma Jaguar 500- problem keeping it running


It sounds like your motor may be running on the automatic choke until warm, but do this check first:

When it dies check for spark at the plug.If you still have spark then your carb will most likely be the cause,and you will need to strip it and clean out the jets.

Please leave positive feedback if you feel I have helped and come back to me if you need further assistance.

Thank you

1000s breather


by the frame but from looking at old posts it seems it should be mounted into the spigot on the engine casing? Also my bike has K&N's so obviuosly the old airfilter box has been removed. Thus the vent to atmoshere which used to run through this box now simply runs down to the back of the engine. ... so my 2nd question is this... should this vent to atmosphere have a valve on it? ,The breather system should have one valve in it and it should be AFTER the breather box on the line that vents to atmosphere. THis is to stop wet cold air entering the breather box and mixing with hot oily air and making mayonaise or aioli. Guzzi's earlier attempts put two valves between the breather box and crankcase - stupid. If you're bike has the old breather box and not the breather box in the frame like the later square fins then remove them - one is hidden in the supply pipe in the breather box - remove with hammer and screwdriver. This will also stop the engine pumping oil up the return line and out of the engine. Any 4 cylinder automotive spring loaded PCV valve will do pretty well. You can improve the efficiency of the breather box by lightly stuffing it with stainless steel wool or such. If the rings are good and the sump level is right it will not drip oil IME.,,,
