I'm planning on installing a breather filter on my 800, get it off my air cleaner to keep oil vapors out of the carb. Which is the best way? I looked at the current hose route, there's a 90degree nipple coming off the rear head pointed down, I would think the hose should run up so oil condensed in the line could return back, can this fitting be turned without breakage? Is it OK just to loop it upward? Wouldn't this trap oil? I would like to hear what other members have done. Also I've heard of a guy who used an inline auto gas filter for a breather filter, any thoughts on this? It would be easy to hide, but it makes me wonder how it would work, restrictive?

I just put a hose on it, ,the bike is grampsized.
i routed the hose up, over the carb, and down to the bottom frame tube.
No filter in it, the loop is big enough to let oil drip back.

Thanks for the reply, did you turn the elbow on the head up or just leave it and loop the hose up?

Important thing is to have it run up higher than the inlet and back down to keep water from being drawn into the engine (and to provide an oil drainback).
