    Instead of a Catch Can

    Can I use a Campbells soup can for a few runs until I get a catch can kit?? Can someone link me to a good kit for an rxp-x or is the one here in the store pretty much the best deal?

    you could BUT keep in mind that the oil comes out in a mist so if its not sealed and vented with a filter you will probably end up with a mess

    Check out this site. Jazz products does an identical oil catch can as the one sold by Riva but less than half the price. Only diff is that it has an extra inlet which is easily blocked off. Just make your own bracket and you got a half price Riva catch can!!

    Hey wolf, thanks for the advice. I shoved a few paper towels inside the can and Im glad I did, after about a full tank they are soaked pretty well. Is all that blowoff normal or is it a little more since I have the hose pointing downward now?

    Im about to order the catch can so I will have it before I run her next time.
