That'd be nice, if you get a chance, but don't sweat it.

I'm thinking of reworking my set up, but not at all sure which way I'm going to go.

If it ever gets to blowing any oil, I'll need to make a catch can of some type.
But for now at 6500 miles, Theres no oil blowing yet !

Hope this works....
I have simple set up.... some hose connections and run the tube down the front and tie wrap on lower right frame rail. Once in a while a drop or two, but typically bone dry. I think this works just fine and is not noticable.

The ramflo is kinda like my cheap round air cleaner. I am thinking about going back to the SE AC with a better element (K&N) I used a chrome bracket to hold it all together, and the bracket has the breather for the heads integrated.
