Re: Almost lost my revolt to an electrical fire
Here's what I've found. The stock crankcase breather line is only 1/8" diameter inside. The crankcase breather outlet (at the motor) is 1/4". Where the breather line hooks to the oil tank is 3/8" (I think). I didn't realize the stock breather line necked down to only 1/8" inside diameter until I cut it in half to do some changes. That line isn't enough to allow the pressure to escape and then it has to go somewhere else. My line is now 3/8" off the motor up to the tank and I no longer see the oil leaking from my stator wires.
Also, the stock routing for the breather line goes under the motor creating a "p" trap of sorts, so if you get oil in the line, venting will be restricted. Run your breather line up and over the motor to prevent that (thanks to Pilot for that idea!)
