Hi im a new member from South Australia I have a 2003 1100 classic 26ks on clock 

I was checking things out noticed in the aircleaner box some oil going in front carby from pcv off front head

Im wondering if any body has measured the amount of condensation and oil in their bike

I re extended the hose out buy the ign switch put a tee piece in it filter on top hose on bottom about 1/2 inch in diameter clear 

In hot weather i get about 4 inches of water/oil mix  after 500 ks the other day it was about 10 deg c here after 200ks it filled the tube about 6 inches 

Wondering if this is normal 

I dont seem to be going through oil only fill to half way mark

Please help or am i worried about nothing-

Thank you Garry

Totally normal, try running your oil a tad below the half way mark.

totally normal I run a catch can of the crankcase vent before the filter.. and in the spring when its cooler in the mornings and warm in the afternoon  ... I can drain the catch can and get 3-4 ounces of cream... but as the weather warms up that disappears  shes an 03 1100 running full synthetics and fully modified..
