Hello, I'm a new guy here...sorta, I lurked on the old site...
I'm installing new rocker box gaskets in my 1996 Electra Glide Standard that I bought about a year ago. The bike is stock, except for the jetting and the modified stock mufflers. It still has the stock air cleaner assembly, including the backing plate. I've never had a problem with any oil coming through the breather and into the air cleaner assembly. It's a well maintained, low mileage bike (less than 10K miles)
However, I might like to switch to a higher flowing air cleaner assembly like and S&S, Screamin Eagle or Ness. Is such a switch likely to increase the chances of oil from the breather system escaping / discharging onto the outside of the motor. That seemed to be the case with a friend's bike.
Should I install The Cure Vent or The Cure Vent Plus while I'm in the rocker boxes in anticipation of going to a higher flow air cleaner later?
Also, would it be better to not use the Plus version, but rather add some sort of check valve to the lines after the exit the heads to make the check valve serviceable without having to go into the rocker boxes?
I'm tempted to leave well enough alone, but I don't want to have to go back into the rocker boxes if I install a high flow air cleaner assembly soon.
