I know what RH thinks, and there has been a lot of speculation, but I don't think the Crankcase Breather hose is what causes the dirty TB plates.

And yes, remove the airbox.

Good luck mi amigo. Wish I could have been there.


What do you think did cause the dirty TB plates? That whole under-seat area looks pretty dirty/dusty to me. Does the owner live on a dirt road ? ? ?

The Hondarosa is located at the end of a three mile dirt road. The owner looks like 10 miles of bad road.

Doctor Howard, Doctor Fine, Doctor Howard.

Let me pile on with my congratulations on a job well done!! You guys dun great. None of us want to have to go through what you just have, but it sure is comforting to know that these bikes can be rejuvenated in such a situation.

Here's to hitting another 150k on KrZy8,eh? :fans:

What do you think did cause the dirty TB plates? That whole under-seat area looks pretty dirty/dusty to me. Does the owner live on a dirt road ? ? ?

The Hondarosa is located at the end of a three mile dirt road. The owner looks like 10 miles of bad road.


Dirt roads are not the root cause. Too many of us have those nasty looking TB plates that don't ride dirt roads.

I don't know what the root cause is. Oiled air filters like K&N I think are a possibility. Maybe it's 'normal'. Who knows.

Ahhhh, thanks SkooterG, that makes sense to me. These awesome engines Suck Big-time (I mean that in the very best way), and I can see them pulling oil from a slightly overdone K&N, or similar filter. Dry Filters for me for sure.

Tx for all kind words! :yahoo:

Me thinks the crankcase blowback is cause of oily crusty crud on TBA. Straight shot from cc to plates. Other bikes I own have filters that drip accumulated oil from cc after hours of use, bikes including Honda yamaha Harley. If I had the right hose I would have bypassed it.
