I figure if my bike uses less engine oil, it is running better, Ono. I also think the intake vacuum from the carburetor might draw some oil vapor into the cylinder, and my engine will perform better with a purer fuel/air mixture. In any event, I trust the Honda engineers had a reason for designing the oil separator, so I decided to put it back on my XR650L.
