Question about 2001 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja
Breather spitting oil @
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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?

Just a possibility, i found this worked on some cars with similar problem (at least reduced the amount of oil going up the pipe)
Add a (bit at a time) bottle of STP oil treatment, the thick gooey stuff, it should increase the surface tension of the oil, keeping it in one piece, not splitting up and splattering around --> thus being less readily exhaled up the blow-off pipe.
just a thought. this will also increase the compression a little since it thickens the oil, will take up a little wear too coz it likes to cling on to bearings.

SOURCE: oil leak out of a breather hose
a small amount of oil from the crankcase vent hose under hard acceleration is most likely normal.American bikes don't leak oil,they mark their spot!
