R&D fuel/oil fix revealed ???
Found this pic. in another thread, looks like a secondary catch can and some additional plumbing, looks pretty simple. People have been speculating about what it will actually fix, if anything. It appears the fuel will still be getting into the oil but will be seperated through the additional catch can... I wish they would release it already, i'm VERY curious to see if it will solve the problem with those who are experiencing it...

I saw that picture too. I don't yet know where the additional lines go to but does the filter allow the gas fumes to pass into the hull? BOOM!?

I'm thinking R&D's mod might cost more than people are expecting....Normally nice catch cans like that go for about 80 bucks....
I'm still trying to think of where they are running those other hoses to....Didn't get a chance to look last night.
To me, until I figure out where they are running their other hoses to, it seems this will help the oil in the intake issue for the people that stil have that issue. Not sure how it's going to help the fuel in the oil pan

I WANT THIS NOW! I've been whining for a catch can mod for a long time since Skip posted his experience with the blowby. I have been changing oil after every ride to protect my engine and to to cover my ass if this goes legal; I want to show that I took every measure possible to protect my ski from damage even though Kawa is not; I plan on recovering my costs later if possible, so it makes sense to fix it on my own; my local "super dealer" knows "nothing" of the problem... So, if anyone can get one of these or make one for me I really don't care what I pay for it; please PM me if you want. Best, LB
