Merc Smart CDI Oil consumption and cambox breather.

Post by touchwoodsden » Fri May 12, 2017 10:53 am

Hi.
Does anyone know where the Cambox breather on the Smart motor goes to on an EvaTrak?

What have the Tiger Smart guys done with the same?

Mine has done 45k and it blows mist from the breather.

I have been told that they all do that but I am not convinced.

I have fitted an oil swirl separator thing which drains back into the sump but it still uses more oil than I am happy with.

Ideas and thoughts?

Cambox breather on a Track T800CDI connects to a point just below the airfilter, all on the RH side of the bike.
Tubing from there to the turbo and between turbo and engine are allways somewhat "oily" so i guess that a light mist will be present. No refill neccesary in 20.000 km so oil consumption on mine is good.
