Hi!

Since I got my winder I`ve had to empty the intercooler two times for engine oil due to not being fast enough with pulling the tether cord when lying upside down.

My dealer says that I can just run the hose into free air (guess a little catch thank would be smart) and disconnect it from the intake. (plugging the intake with a little hose and a plug). They said it would be fine as long as I run the hose in a "loop" before entering it into free air of catch tank.

The hose should be replaced with a stiffer one that doesn`t get pinched when running it in a loop.

Anyone tried this?

Running the engine with oil in the intake isn`t good and it ruins the day of riding.

Any tips apprectiated :)

I ran a hose up then back down along the back side of the chain case. I day lighted it about an inch below the running board in the toe hold area. Dont forget to make a cut in the hose parallel with hose 6 or 8 inches from the bottom just incase the bottom hole freezes shut.
