What is this hose barb on my lifan?

Recommended Posts

That’s the crankcase breather. You should have a hose on that nipple that either runs down or is connected to your air filter if it’s still stock.

I have a cheap pod style air filter....so I can just run a tube to the ground? Why the heck is it leaking oil? Is that normal?

If you put in to much oil, it will tend to leak from that tube. You could run a tube down the back of the engine, or set up a catch can but drain the oil and put the correct amount back in and you should be fine.
