Xt550 oil tank breather

Recommended Posts

I have completed my project of squeezing an82 xt550 engine into a cz514 motocross bike rolling chassis .

I competed in a twinshock class and nearly had to ring the awesome police ! The bike went really well

Only thing was I had to fit an oil tank into the project as the oil in frame was not an option . I made the tank , and put a breather pipe onto the tank . However some oil was blown out of the breather.

My question is this

On the original bike was the oil in frame sealed ? or was there a breather . On the xt engine Oil out of the engine is pumped and oil in is gravity . But if the oil in frame is effectively sealed then being pumped out of the engine , then it becomes pumped back in ! Any one got any ideas ?
