If you have the 04-05 race manual, check it out, Kawi actually sells a catch can for this.

I had the exact same issue. I ended up changing out the tiny filter the is in the back of the airbox and that fixes the issue up for a handful of months.

I now just swap out that filter every second oil change (Street ridden bike).

Is this a problem on the Gen3? I just capped off the airbox, and put a filter on the tranny vent. I haven't ridden it yet, but this sounds like maybe a bad idea to not have the tranny vent going directly to a container of sorts.

So how can it be cured (blowby)?
My oil relief valve was stepping and i changed it.
I measured 40KPa? (double) oil pressure before changing it .
2mm overbore Je's with stock head.
It lasted fine on the dynapro though (20hours)...Saw it after.

Is this normal?
Any suggestions, thanks :thumbsup:

Does it also happen when the engine is hot? Maybe there is simply too much clearance between the piston rings and the cylinder walls...

You could also install an oil separator and a return hose. :mrgreen:

And good to see you back here. :eek:ccasion1

Yeah but we are talking about ALOT of oil, up to the stacks.
Isn't excessive pressure hurting things inside the engine? Maybe a bearing ? :eek:ccasion1
