Here is another thing you can do ahead of time and prevent it from being a issue.
Relocate the vent off the back of the starter housing.
Some of these units will splash oil up and through the vent screen.
Messy :?

You unscrew the vent and replace it with a fitting.
Attach some hose and run it up and into your air box.
It's a easy fix.

I'm not 100% sure but I think the fitting is 1/8 NPT.

If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.

One other thing I did was to put some radiator hose over the top of the vent and I left the hose long and packed it with some foam to act as a additional filter.

It does not leak and no issues.
At some point I will likely change this to make it a bit more factory looking :lol:
