yo hoes...

the back of the rocker cover (or front, cant remember) is a circular output type thing... as standard, what should be here? an oil catch? an oil breather?

not 100% sure, whatever it is i need, i need one lol! so if you have one, let me know.

thanks, Peace, Love, Tranquility.

Ben

As standard, there is a rubber hose which goes into the standard airbox, most people who put aftermarket filters on either run the hose into the new filter or put something on there. I think people put one of them little tiny filters on there - im sure you know what I am on about. It's mainly just a breather pipe. No oil will come out of it, at least I have never seen any come out.

One of your hoses goes from this into the K&N filter.
Have a look at the list I gave you for the hoses codes and you'll see which one I mean
