Baf­fling breather

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - WHAT’S THE PROBLEM? -

Q What is this mech­a­nism at­tached to the back of my Yamaha XJR1200’S clutch cover? The gas­ket on the other side has failed and thrown oil out. Is it easy to dis­as­sem­ble to fit a new gas­ket? Adam Siv­ell-thomp­son, PS Face­book Group

A Saul Tow­ers says: That is de­scribed in the parts fiche as a breather. There is a huge grom­met be­hind it. There is also a rub­ber ring be­hind the round plate in the cen­tre cover. It all comes apart eas­ily enough to es­tab­lish which of the gas­kets has failed.
