crankcase breather

Hi everyone,
after an abundant year I have this quad,
I believe mine has a problem,
or it is a factory defect.
Practically,
I put oil at maximum,
but he spits out,
from the crankcase vent,
and the level drops to the minimum,
so i was thinking to bring this tube,
it too, inside the filter,
what do you think ?

The 700xx has a rather strange way of checking the oil. You need to let the engine run for about 5 minutes, then turn it off. Immediately check the oil upon shutting the engine off. I hope his solves you problem.

Are you talking about the tube on the air box that rest against the air filter? If so you have some serious issues!

And I agree with Nacho, hard to get accurate oil level reading. So you may be over filling. Best to just drain and start fresh. If after a oil change its spitting oil out the vent, you have a issue for sure.

Thank you all !
I mean the vent below,
see photo,
I checked with my finger,
and it was all wet with oil, inside.
My research is due because oil always seems to come down, the level,
but I never respected,
oil check as the manual, says, this is true.
Anyway, guys, if I'm not wrong,
this I'm pointing, it crankcase breather,
while the one in the air filter,
comes from the oil tank.

If that is your machine you need to RIDE it! The oil check procedure is goofy. I thought you were supposed to leave it running...but haven't looked since the day I bought mine.

Hello,
no, mine is the gray one in my avatar's photo,
however, I removed a little oil,
with a syringe,
and I decided, put a thickness,
under rear wheels,
as if he had back 22 tires
and 21, front
as original
and follow oil procedure, just like manual says,
and see a little
What happen !

REPORT:
Honda is always accurate,
we are inaccurate (for we I mean me!)
I put TRX in a perfect plan,
and considering as if it had 22 "tire rear
and 21 "tire front,
result, wonderful.
After 5 minutes without accelerating,
I turn off the engine,
and check immediately, without screwing the dipstick,
oil was at the highest level !!!
Just the time to do second measurement,
after 15-20 seconds
and level fell to mid-level !!!
So it must be a quick operation,
and check only once!
This process, plan,
and as if there were standard tires,
I think it is also ideal in,
Oil change,
otherwise it might not come out all,
as in my case...
having front 23 "tire,
and 21 "rear ..
Moreover, I applied a small extension,
to the vent pipe, in the filter box,
to prevent losses,
or limit them,
during wheelies !!!

This photo is pointing at the water pump drain hose. So I really hope your not dropping oil out of it.

M_Quick you are a genius!
About 15 days ago,
I did change oil and filter,
(the mechanic did)
the trx was on a slight false floor,
a little sloping,
and not all the oil had come out (I understood that, later)
I had 3 liters of new oil, I said mechanical, put 2 liters
but towards the end, the oil tank,
it filled up completely,
and a lot of oil out of it,
dirtying everything,
including that tube !!!

So all right, my water tank, radiator,
it's nice clean,
always green liquid, like 1 year ago, I'm calm.
Only problem,
currently, the oil is like a blend,
with the previous one,
but they are both 10w40
there should not be any problem,
to change again, urgently,
also because it is an oil of 20 euros almost, per liter.

Thanks again

this forum is great !!!
