    Your pic of the Aprilia superbike oil catch tank and Jess's catch tank got me thinking kzmille.
    Because I moved my starter relay behind the battery, I figured that a catch can the size of a beer can would fit.
    The Takegawa tank is 372cc, is designed for a Honda Monkey bike and is the only commercial one I could find that mounts horizontally.
    All the inlets are baffled and after a 2 hour ride yesterday I could not feel any oil on the breathers.
    Unfortunately the only breathers I could find in Perth are BSP thread, so I had to mount them on hoses.
    That only left enough room to mount the breathers on the front of the tank as they would have been touching the back of the indicator mounted on the back.
    Was thinking about drilling and tapping the rear outlets to BSP thread to fit the breathers directly.
    But I'm loathed to do that because the tank wasn't cheap.

    I think I might be dense but even after reading this thread I have no idea what this catch tank is for. Haha.

    It's for the crank case breather, that stock goes straight into the airbox.
