Re: Crank case vent - excess condensation??
Neither the crank case or reservoir oil was milked, but technically what you are looking at is "milked" oil. The dipstick pulls clean oil and the oil drained is perfectly clean with not even a streak of moisture. This saturaded oil is only on the venting side of the oil circuit.
There is no doubt that it is from the crank vapors condensating in the top of the reservoir and in the crank case vent line. Motor has not been sunk and water wasn't that deep on the first ride.
I had a loop in my crank case vent plus it was extended to the top of the cage. I always loop my case vents because if they do get sunk at least it will catch the water for me to unconnect and blow out backwards. In this case, it caused to much back pressure and had a negative effect. I have a clear 3/4" line going straight to the air box to test the effects.
