Yamaha T-Max Crankcase Breather - Oil

Discussion in 'Scooters' started by twscoot, Sep 30, 2007.

  1. After looking at two T-Maxs on the weekend - one brand new one with 1000km on the clock.
    Is it normal for a small amount of oil to emerge from the crankcase breather tube?
    The 1000km model had some oil build up on the side stand hinge which seemed to come from this tube.
    The new one (on touching the tube) had a (very) small amount of fresh oil on the tip.
    Didn't seem like a big deal but am wondering if this is normal.
    Thanks in anticipation...

  2. Yep, normal. Most bikes do it, thats why they have a tube out the side (so the oil vapour doesn't go on the back tyre).
