yeah you'll need all three catch cans or seal up the bottom of the air box and run your oil breather line into it, and just buy or make your carb and coolant cans.:thumbup:

I was in a hurry this weekend putting on the new green hoses and put a T fitting from the power valve hose into the carb can.......it pressurized the system and basically fuel injected my carb when running over 1/2 throttle!

I should have known better!:hammer::hammer::hammer:

apa... Question for you. I just received a coolant catch-can, and I found a useful mounting location tucked in between the radiator and the frame down-tube.

Is there a risk of the plastic melting if its in contact with the radiator? Should I be seeking a different mounting location?

SME Carb catch can

Any one running one of these? I just installed one on my Husky
and was wondering the best way to route the lower tube/can.:headscrat
Any pics will help.

Mounting so its touching the radiator isnt a problem....keep it away from the header though.

I still include the bracket with screws and 2 zip ties. Most just run the zip ties threw the radiator and mount the tank directly to it.

Leave enough extra loose at the end so you can point it away from the bike other wise it goes toward the rear axel bearings (bad). When I ride in the dirt I just remove the end cap. I have to drain it about every other session for supermoto and about once a day for mini-roadraces (no Jumps).

I really like that you can see how full it is.
