    crank case vent fitting

    Finally got my stainless tubing and made the fitting for the vent in the block. First i ordered a new fitting as i like having stock parts for back up. Then i figured the size of tubing. Could not find the stainless tubing anywhere local and finally ordered it on line by the foot. It was .62 OD, .065 wall thickness, .495 ID and it was seemless. Removed factory tube from flange and then had someone tig a piece of the new tubing into the flange. I had the welder guy drill the hole out in the flange and let the tube protrude through the back side of the fitting. I forgot the exact mesurement but the new tube stuck through the flange the same as nickle is thick. We used a nickel as an example and it was perfect. I then beveled the side that is the "nickel" thickness sticking through the flange. I did this so i could use the factory o-ring to seal it. Put it all back together and seems to fit and work properly. I even ordered the 08 hose to run from the fitting to the valve/head cover so i could due away with the beather box that mounted to the side of the block. After fitting was mounted on block it was clear that it will allow quite alot more flow. Will start testing next week i hope. I do have a cheap aftermarket catch can coming incase i see the need to run a piggy back catch can that i can drain. Seems kinda strange to me that kawi drained the factory catch can back to the oil pan. People are saying, from what i have read, the 08's dont have the same problem as the 07's so i copied the 08 system. Sirbreaksalot was my inspiration. Here are some pics.

    The tube looks great. It may be worth making another one so I can test it with my R&D kit
    All I would have to do is make the hole in the grommet on the botom of the breather case larger and I'd be in business

    I do have 5 extra pieces of stainless tubing cut to the exact length i used if you want one. One is all ready promised so get them while they are hot. If i was you and wanted to do this i would order a new fitting/flange. That way your ski doesnt sit waiting for parts. It would be very benificial to the kit as it would have to increase flow. Let me know. On a side note i did not attempt to remove the casting/machining flaw from fear of shaving getting into the motor.

    DIBS.... LOL.....HAJ, PM me your address, I'll send you a check for tube, and shipping! I too would like to try this to see if it works. I plan on ordering the R&D and can give my results. Hopefully this will eliminate the GIO all together!
