Quite simple -- removed the hose that connects the crankcase breather to the airbox, and replaced it with this $10 air filter from Autozone. Why? Because I don't like the idea of crankcase air going into my engine. And if it reduces pressure in the crankcase and lets the pistons rev more freely, all the better! :hellobye

That won't actually make the crankcase vapor escape as easily as the stock or other vent solutions.
How so? I can see that it wouldn't necessarily be any better than the stock setup, but I don't see how it can be worse....

Your setup will work better than stock...

Still better than dumping all that hot crankcase air back into your air box.
That's kind of what I was thinking, but I'm definitely curious to hear fiveoh's thoughts....
