Buell Puking Oil Out Front Cyl Breather
My son rides a '03 XB12S. He had the engine rebuilt a couple of years ago. It's now blowing a significant amount of oil out the breather on the front rocker cover. I suspect a ring or piston problem. Is there anything we should check before I talk him into pulling the engine? He's pretty frustrated and is talking about selling the bike in it's current condition but I'm trying to tell him we can fix it and he can sell it for more money. He's been thinking about selling it and getting a cruiser anyway but I don't think he will get much out of it the way it is.
