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.

      I just bought a 2008 Trooper T2 not knowing much about them. On this one the owner said the horn doesn't work, the winch never did work and during inspection the rear brake lights didn't work. He said he replaced the rear light pods recently and the brake lights worked before. He said the fuse module is corroded so he bypassed it and rigged up his own switches for the fuel pump and radiator fan. I see in the wiring diagram the horn and rear brake lights are on the same circuit. Now I am worried the problem is in the wiring harness.
      I have the wiring diagram from the online manual but I can't make any sense of it. I see lots of posts about wiring issues and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the issues I see with these machines and am regretting buying it.
      For now my main concern is to get the brake lights working so I can drive it to some nearby trails. I would appreciate any advice on how to go about diagnosing the problem or workarounds. Also if there is a better wiring diagram out there that might help. I would consider hiring someone local to diagnose it so any recommendations are welcome.
      TIA.

      We just bought a 2014 Massimo 1100 with only 27 drive hours on it. We took it out a couple of times and then the check engine light came on. We took it to an authorized massimo shop and they can't figure out what's wrong. Any advice?! We are in Utah.
