There not running burnt gases into your airbox. It's there as a vent for your crankcase. It can be taken out of airbox but you still need it filtered. You do not want water or dirt to get into that hose. Is just leave it alone, it in the best spot already.

As the piston moves up and down it moves air in and out of the case where the crankshaft rotates just like the piston moves air in/out of jug. The blowby tube just let's the pressure/vacuum excape. The oily residue is just a mist of engine oil.

I would have to put something over it just for peace of mind. They have small filters that may work at some auto stores. Or maybe extend it and point it downward so it has a harder time getting dust in it.

Ya that not a bad idea only have to clean the little filter rather than the main one as long as i have room to get it in there not to sure of that as it might be a bit tight

During a dusty trip i think i sucked up dirt thru this vent. now need new pistons, crank and valve seals. this opening needs a filter. Running a no-toil filter and ther is too much space to get dirt in this vent.
