    Hi guys.
    I've turned my Bellagio into a Cafe Racer with a V7 tank, which neccesitated removing the airbox and fitting pod filters.
    Here's a vid of my bike, can't post a photo at the mo, since photobuckaneers held everyone to ransom. (Suggestions for an alternative photo hosting site would be good!)

    It runs great! sounds awesome with that induction roar, but thinking of fitting a small blow back oil bottle to the breather hose which currently goes to the atmosphere so I collect the oil which currently drips onto the ground, and routing the crank case gasses from the bottle straight into the pod filters to make it more attractive to Aussie inspectors when I ship it back home. Anyoneone here done that? Any advice apreciated.
    CJB.

    Awesome job!!! There was a post recently in the (I think) Stelvio section about a catch can for the breather.

    Only us old guys that were pulling wrenches in the 60's would know this: vehicles used to vent to the air.
    Chevy v-8's had a metal tube that ran down the back of the engine.
    When the rings started to go bad the bell housing, transmission & back would be covered with oil.
    Made changing clutches a real joy.

    That's where the oil slick down the center of the road came from.
    Back then riding a bike was real fun especially going thru toll booths where hundreds of vehicles each day dumped oil.
