Don't speak too soon
« on: August 28, 2022, 07:39:18 PM »
Hi All

I fitted a one-way valve into the breather of the Mighty Midget as per previous threads and up to now the oil consumption has lessened quite a lot. I don't want to get too excited, but there has undeniably been a big reduction in the need to top up with oil over the 150 or so miles I've done since fitting the valve.

Fingers crossed this is a solution that I can live with as other than oil use I love the MM to bits.

Absolutely. Also to you mate as I seem to remember it was you who suggested it.

I did the same thing on my XBR and it seems to help.
