Really? I was guessing it was an early warning sign or something... if liquid in bottle = bad. I had several bikes, and have never seen a catch on a drain line.

My bike has one as well, as I'm sure do thousands of other Kawi's.

No idea what it does though, haha.

that bottle is actually there to catch excess oil that can accumulate in your airbox.

yeah its there to catch the over flow oil....so it doesn't drip on the ground...don't take it off you'll look like a harley was parked there....also for those of you that change your own oil you need to empty it at oil change..

should it be "hanging" like that or did you pull it out so we could see it ?

The hose connects to yo penis so that you don't have to pull over to pee. I suggest you upgrade to a bigger bottle.

oil in the bottle is better the oil dripping out your bike!
