120r with an oil catch can installed

A friend ran the breathers out of the heads into a catch can with a drain valve on the bottom. About everytime he goes for a ride even a five mile ride he can open the drain valve and a thimble full of water comes out. Kinda suprised seeing that.

I ran my breather lines into a clear catch can and I have observed the same thing.

Why go into a can? I just let mine drip on the ground, maybe 1 or 2 drops when I park. No maintenance, filter stays clean also.

Been there done that. Once you see what actually comes out , you know that 1or two drops you see on the floor is going on all the time.
Much cleaner.

Exactly, I think the best solution to polution is dilution. I would rather drop a drop every mile or so than have to dispose of a cup full of the crap. Take paper towel and wipe up the occasional drop off of my shop floor. My motorcycle is not a piece of jewelry so oil leaks dont bother me, it is a tool to help me fullfill some of my dreams.
