I never had the pumps out, I just checked by pulling the cover off of the return side. You can hear something sucking in the video I posted, but being the cover was off I don't think it was creating enough vacuum to suck any oil. I just bought a new smaller PCV valve and rather then a catch can I ran the house out the back of the fender. I'm going to fire up the bike and take a short trip as soon as I finish this oil change. I'm sick of cleaning oil off of everything, that's for sure.Scottie
My first move would be to remove the stuffing of steel wool out of the breather port. It's not a good place for it.Make sure that rubber vacuum hose is at least 5/16" I.D. tube.Remove the PCV valve, and put a duckbill on the hose, or just get a small gatorade bottle and put two holes in the top, and run the breather hose into it, so it works as a catch can. Then get a duckbill on it when you can.The catch can allows you to see what's blowing out, and not make a mess all over the bike. Zip-tie it to a frame member somewhere out of the way, temporarily.Also, definitely check for the oil return system issues too.
I think I figured out the problem. I pulled the timing cover and there was a piece of silicone lodged in 1 of the return ports. Also I noticed that all the holes in the timing cover gasket for the return ports were not lined up correctly and only about half of the holes were exposedScottie
