Crankcase Breather/Oil Seperator

Recommended Posts

This past week I was going over routine maintenance on my Trooper and decided to check out the crankcase breather/oil seperator unit and see if it need any attention. The thing is a mess. The fine dust from the desert where I ride hardly even slows down as it goes past the cheap paper filter under the nice chrome cap and enters directly into the top end of the motor. After taking every thing apart and blowing out dust and muck where oil mist from the engine combines with the dust running past the filter I decided to relocate the unit up into the clean air.

Although it looks like a chrome martini shaker mounted to the side of my roof rack I'd rather have people ask me what it is and tell them I drink alot than have all that dust being sucked into the engine. Pull it apart and take a look, I think you'll be surprised.

Happy Trails

I have more of a problem with it blowing oil out rather than letting it in, does yours stay dry?

Mine was dry as a bone except at the point where it enters the head. Even at the nipple where it enters the head there was only on oil mist . All of the hoses had dust in them. The canister was dusty and the oil drain hole was clogged with dirt. In the hose fitting at the head where the dirt mingled with the oil mist there was about a 1/4" of crud. So it apears that mine sucks instead of blows. There was no oil in the canister. For me relocating the canister seems to be the best solution.

      Hello Folks - newbie here with my first post so go easy on me.  I picked up a Buck 400 in May 2020 direct from Massimo when they were doing a closeout sale on the 400 models.  I read the reviews and was skeptical. 
      We live in a golf cart community  we do not plan any off roading - just some very mild work tasks like hauling firewood / brush etc.  Honestly, all we do is cruise around our neighborhood roads.  I pulled the trigger b/c the price was cheaper than a 2WD lifted golf cart and the Buck  had way more features.
      We have a few steep hills and after about 20 - 30 minutes of cruising, my check engine light comes on.  It only happens when we are going up or down one of the hills .  We head straight home and things seem fine the next day.  Light never comes on unless we tackle multiple hills during one ride.
      Should I be worried?  
      PS - Unit is 4 months old and has 258 miles on it - barely broken in.  I've yet to go full throttle on a flat or up a hill.

      Hello,
      I have a 2018 Dominator LT 1000 and I am wanting to stiffen up the ride.  What is the best way to accomplish this, tighten the recoil spring up or add air to the shock.  I can't find any information on the procedure.  Also, since im asking questions........my top end rpms doesnt seem to be where it should be.  Max RPM is 6100 and usually drops down to 5800 maxed out.  Im just wondering if everyone else has the same experience.
      Thanks,
      Kirk Falk

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.

      Soo for my second problem lol, 2009 trooper 1100 5 speed , will not engage 5th gear , all others work fine but seems like 5th doesn't engage completely and wont grab the gear. Any idea on where to start looking for issues, or what to look for in regards to linkage.
