Crankcase Breather Hose

So I went on a spirited ride the other weekend, winding up the Goose 5k-8k+ rpm curve to curve engine braking to set up the turn speed :bike:. It couldn't have been better except when I look down and saw engine oil dripping from the top of the transmission area. It ended up being the crankcase breather hose, cracked right above the hose clamp. My theory is the clamp had walked up to the end of the internal pipe and was clamping too tight around the original hose, until it inevitably cut the hose. The spirited riding just exposed the issue, I guess better off a few counties away from home instead of on the Cherohala Skyway. :huh:

These hoses are junk . Make sure you index the hose clamps when you  reinstall the hose . You will do this again . It won't hurt to keep one in stock .

I bought a new hose and "Quality" hose clamps from MG Cycle. But did have to work on getting the clamp location set correctly under the spine frame where there is plenty of room to work. <_<
