The Cure Vent Plus: Anyone install it?

I was thinking of having The Cure Vent Plus by Creative Cycle Products installed in my 2002 883 Custom. It is supposed to fix the oil from the air cleaner problem once and for all. It installs underneath the valve covers.

What it is supposed to do is enlarge the drain hole and raise the oil dam so the oil has time to drain back into the engine instead of getting blown into the air cleaner. My dealer doesn't have any experience with this product at all so I'm hoping someone here can tell me whether it is worth having this thing installed or not.

I want to add the Screaming Eagle air cleaner but don't want to make the oil dripping problem any worse than it already is. It's not a huge deal with me because I don't do a ton of high RPM riding but I'd like to fix this so it's one less thing to have to worry about. Sucks having to remember to wipe out the air cleaner everyonce and a while.

I also don't think that just running a longer hose so the oil drips onto the ground is a "fix". It's just a band aid for a problem that shouldn't exist in the first place.

thanks,
KrustyTC

I put it on my 1200. It mostly works except when the oil gets really hot or you ride at high RPM's for an extended period of time. I also put the SE aircleaner on at the same time. I've had drips only from the above mentioned problems. Around town I don't have any drips.

Thats the only time I have any problems anyway. High RPMs for a long period of time or really hot days when the oil thins out too much. I don't really have any problems with normal driving. Although it may reduce the amount of time needed in between wiping out the air cleaner.

Do you have any oil buildup in the air cleaner at all or only during high RPM really hot days?

later,
KrustyTC

"This setup only works with the Screamin Eagle Airbox. If that is what you have I will send you the vented standoffs and specially bored and drilled bolts for 25 dollars. You will need to buy 3 ft of 3/8 fuel line tubing, a Tee connector, some clamps, and whatever you want to terminate the system with. This could be a PCV valve, or a crankcase breather filter or nothing. $25.00 a set."

No problem VincentH, I happened upon this at www.Sportster.org which I frequent alot for different ideas. When I first saw the bolts/drilled spacers, I about crapped my pants!! Was exactly what I was look'n for. Can't wait till mine get here, already got the tubing/fittings (stainless steel) ready. Aloha.

Here is another link/pic of the bolts and spacers and what Lee did to them to make it work. Sorry I cannot post pics (too large), I do not have my phto/paint program running right now.

To Rscotts1:

All that does is reroute the breather setup so the oil drips on the ground instead of going into the back of the air cleaner. That's a bandaid for the problem. I'm looking for something that will fix the problem.

thanks,
KrustyTC

It may look like a "Band Aid" but I for one would damn sure like my scoot venting to the ground than out of the back of my Screamin Eagle filter all over the side of my flat black oil tank and up the side of my seat and pants!!

I totally agree with you, sorry if I offended you at all. I was just saying that if this product works and fixes the problem, then I won't have to have any oil dripping from my bike at all. Which is how it should be. "They all leak" isn't an answer we should put up with anymore.

later,
KrustyTC

KrustyTC, you do not need to vent it onto the ground, you could simply rig up some kind of small catch can (could even be as small as a film canister) stuffed with foam or something. I agree with VincentH, if there is a product out there that (really) keeps the oil out of my SE air cleaner I am going to buy/install it in an instant!! So far from what I have read, practically NONE of the products out there will keep the oil out of your air cleaner, the only way to do this is to totally reroute those pesky breather lines.

That's my point though. This thing is supposed to eliminate the oil coming out of those lines to begin with. Then I wouldn't need to reroute the lines. Even if it just reduces the problem to the point where any oil that does come out of the lines is sucked into the carb like it's supposed to be it might be worth the cost. I think I'm going to have it done. Of course I won't be riding anytime soon here in Mass. with temps way below freezing. But as soon as I get this installed and get a chance to ride the bike I'll let you guys know how it worked.

later,
KrustyTC
