I had some issues riding in rain that I think were caused by vapour lock when the breather line was blocked with moisture so I'm thinking it might be helpful to at least change that line.

Thoughts?
Just shorten and cut your breather line at a 45 degree angle. When that line is subjected to constant water, like in the rain it can suck in water and act like a blocked line. Cutting at an angle makes it harder for the water to get sucked in. Worked well on my Scrambler and never had any issues after doing that.
