Oil From Breather to Reservoir
Just got back from the dunes. This trip presented some interesting issues with the Riot. One of which is that I now have oil coming through the filter on the end of the breather line to the oil reservoir. I had removed the line from the reservoir to the intake plenum and ran the line about 24" up from the reservoir. At high rev's/speed, I am getting a good bit of oil out of the breather. It's probably 3 or 4 ounces of oil in total.......so not pouring out. But it is something new.
Any thoughts what might be causing this? I had plenty of people around camp throwing out ideas like "burned rings", "cracked piston", etc. But the power is still there in the engine. I do notice that the stainless steel in the exhaust muffler is discolored....but that has been with EVERY exhaust I have run either with my Revolt or with this Riot. So I consider that normal.
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.......who's bringing the chips?
