    Problem with Oil Coming Out Catch Can

    I have an aftermarket catch can that has no baffling inside. I have oil coming out of the filter. Does anyone else running high boost have this problem? What could be the problem and what could be the solution?

    if you have a lot of blow by and your catch can is filling up you have a problem are you getting any codes or is the ski going into limp mode? if the can is filling up you need to check compression and take off valve cover and make sure cam plugs are still in. I run high boost and have no blow by but I did have a issue in the past and ignored it no I have a large piece of aluminum in my garage that has a hole in the side

    Compression was checked a year ago and was 150 145 150 150. I am getting no codes. This has been a problem for a while. I am constantly changing oil. I haven't done much riding the last two plus years because my son was born. Now I'm back and need to fix my problems and finish my build. I'm running the jd catch which replaced the oem part. The catch can is hollow inside. Could my oil be getting cooled too much? My cooling lines were done shortly after the ski came out and I understand that there are now better ways to cool it.

    I would def pull the valve cover and check and see if the cam plugs r still there I had one come out and had a lot of oil coming out! If there still in then is it possible that u r overcooling the engine and causing excessive blow by??

    yes, some skis do it and some not as much, i have a sho here that i tried to put a catch can on it identical to the JD can and it blew oil out, this was back when the ski was new and had 10hrs put the stock can back on and now has over 240hrs and running like new.

    in the other hand my buddy has a fz with over 200 hrs and a aftermarket catch can and it doesnt blow a drop of oil out the can. go figure..
