Hey everyone,

I'm prepping my bike for the race year and the rule books state to add a catch can for breather hoses venting the cam box, top end, crankcase, primary drive case, transmission, carburetors and oil tank. What have you guys used and where do you mount them?

If you have pics, that would be great too. Thanks.

I have a Harc-Pro metal catch tank, pictured here:

The cost is around $50USD

It is connected to the right hand side frame (underneath so it is protected by the frame and bodywork). You can see it mounted to my bike here:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks rocketjockey. I'm kind of in a bind because my race is next weekend and not sure if I can get that in time. Do you think I can save some money as well using something else? Also, do I have to reroute hoses or add hoses to existing ones to reroute to the catch tank? Again, thanks for any information.

I'm assuming you have a street version, correct? (Do they sell "white" race only versions in the US?)

If its a street bike, I would think all you'd have to do is re-route all the overflow hoses (dangling underneath where the kickstand should be) and plug them securely into a catch bottle mounted securely elsewhere (maybe under the frame where my metal catch tank is.). Depending on how long the hoses are, you might have to chop them down a bit too. Just make sure they are long enough to not back out of whatever container you put them in.

On my RS125 back in my CCS/WERA/GLRRA days I used Mt. Dew cans as overflow bottles (Then again, I didn't have to worry about engine oil like the 4-strokes). I don't know how strict your orginization will be.

Sorry I'm not much help brotha-man.

Yes, I have the street version. I see. I'll try to inquire about using a soda can. Is that what you essentially did for that catch can you used? Rerouted the overflow hoses where the kickstand is and put it in that metal one you linked above? Thanks again.

Essentially, but the kit I have also has a cap for your oil fill so that any overflow from that collects in the metal catch tank as well.

Consider the soda can a temp fix, you really should pick up something more purpose built if you can.

Perfect, thanks rocketjockey. Going to look around for those catch cans.

You could pick up a pair of nalgene bottles. The sell them in a lot of camping sores as water bottles. They're a little more "professional" looking

I zip tied a 16oz bottle in my subframe and ran my overflow hoses to it. Passed tech just fine. The overflow hose from the coolant resevoir I ran to a soda can wired behind my headers.

edit: I wasn't even thinking....that was on my F4. I haven't raced my 600rr yet so haven't put in the catch bottle...

Awesome, thanks rrwantr. I'll try that. Where did you pick up the 16oz bottle from? Is that just from a sporting goods store, like a sport drink bottle?

Thanks Wolley, I'll try that, sounds like what rrwantr is suggesting also for the 16 oz bottle.

See my edit.....don't think I could do what I did with the F4 to the 600rr, due to the undertail exhaust....but I'm sure you can find some where for the bottle.. I was ghetto and used a used bottled water bottle as you couldn't see it....but you may not want to be so ghetto...lol
