    2000 VMax Breather Pipe Issue

    Hello I have an issue where the breather pipe that is located in the sump (see photos) does not align with the hole. If put in on the o ring side it does not fit as it doesn’t reach, the other way around and it would need a spacer for the bolt but that seems wrong? Ordered a new pipe and it...

    Very clean 2009 VMX17 VMax.
