Leave Open the Puke Tube?
I have a buddy here at work with a Rebel. And it's what inspired me to buy my Rebel. He said he just leaves the cap off his puke tube. Aside from creepy crawlies working their way up into the puke tube, what would be the downside of just leaving it open? I'm not likely to do it, but am curious.
If the bottom end remains in its design position (in that wire holder), it would drip right of the rear tire track. But even if it dripped in line with the rear tire, I don't see it causing a problem. I'm sure we drive through oil drips from cars frequently. Sort of seems like if it were open it might facilitate that blowby make its way into the drain tube more easily. Dunno. In my case, I'll run it the way Honda intended.
