Crankcase breather

Post by Saltspringer » Sun Nov 18, 2018 9:03 pm



My crankcase breather goes to a small collector pot located just behind the right hand side rear engine mount. The lid of the collector has a spout for a hose but in my case no hose was connected. Can someone tell me where this hose goes...?


Cheers

I believe on your year bike it comes off the air filter housing.

My 78 doesn't have a canister and just vents to the air.

Yeah, it is connected to a fitting on the right rear of the air filter canister.

Thanks guy's, yes, that makes sense. I will have a look at the air box and see if I can find the other end to attach a hose...
