    Fogging down wrong end of breather

    Hi all,
    first time I have tried to fog my sho. I stupidly didn't read the info on the net properly and sprayed the fogging oil down the wrong end of the breather hose. In other words i unplugged the breather hose going into the air box and sprayed down into the breather system........I know dumb. I know now to spray into the intake.
    will this cause problems? I sprayed maybe 20 sec of oil waiting to see the white smoke but nothing........ I wonder why.

    It's going to make your air filter oily! I'd imagine that oiling a paper filter element is going to cause some air restriction. You might think about replacing the filter. Other than that, no, can't see any real issues occurring.

    Hey capndik,
    Thank you for replying. Being a technical mind I couldn't believe how stupid I was.
    I have a riva filter so that is not going to be a problem. Will the fogging oil just drain into the sump eventually?

    I ran it for a good 10 mins on the hose yesterday without issue so I guess I am safe. Then re-fogged it properly and got the smoke I was after
