Hey guys, hope everyone has been enjoying the holiday season!
I recently installed my Bwoody 4" and BT catch can. I've run into two seemingly minor issues. First, the stock tube running from the air box to the oil fill neck obviously can no longer be used, so I am running a pvc flexible tube from the oil fill around to the little nipple(?) on the Bwoody. Basically I think it looks sloppy and also pushes against the catch can so I have ordered a small breather filter like I've seen on a few rides around the forums. Is this generally the way to go or should I keep a tube going directly from the oil fill to the nipple on the Bwoody? Any drawbacks or tips? I've heard of a few people having problems with an oily mist coming from the filter, and I'm hoping to avoid that altogether with a good tight install. Went with this filter to install on the oil fill: http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...x?Prod=62-1320
Secondly, while installing the catch can (which I love, by the way), the lower hose seems to be pretty pinched between the back of the alternator. I'm going to go back and fiddle a little more to see if I can't get it to wedge on tighter and eliminate some of the pinch, but could this pose a problem? My assumption was that it couldn't be that big a problem unless it was running under some high pressures which catch cans are not. I'm using braided lines in case that factors in at all.
Thanks in advance! Happy New Year!!

Breather filter is fine I run one and never had 1 issue in 3 years. The catch can I also run braided lines with no issues. Try to get that bottom line on all the way and jus pinch it to kinda change and keep it somewhat round
Well I just received the filter tonight and tried to put it on the fill. 3/8" is apparently too small. Shucks. Looks like I'm running the bootleg tube a little while longer now... Do you know what size and style your filter is? Any help is much appreciated!!
