    • the oil level gets depleted by 250 ml in 200-300 kms, but do u ever find 250 ml oil in filter box, never. coz if its leaking through the breather pipe, then you should be able to find all the leaked oil there. it is not so.

    Ans: Yes I did find the oil in the filter box(that is how I found the reason behind oil depletion), which is only the condensed one, not all of the vapours can be condensed so rest is burnt with fresh incoming air in the engine.


    • second, the breather pipe is connected to breather vent in crankcase, which is designed in such a way so as to pass air but not oil, it is filled with some material which allows passage of air and not liquid. if you have a doubt that the part is no longer working effeciently, you can try changing it, instead of doing the desi jugaad.

    Ans: You are right its suppose to only vent the gases from crank case to the filter box but In Pulsar its is Not designed to Do any thing related to seperating oil in the vented Gas from crank case, this is the first time I have taken out the pipe, found no material inside its Plain ol rubber pipe, if you find anything inside Please post the pictures, it will be helpful.

    I have done My part in solving My problem, its upto other members to adapt/improvise/implement in their bikes.
    also I have done enough bench marking with friend's pulsar and other 150cc bikes too, their placement of this pipe is totally different, this jugaad works only for Pulsar where the pipe placement is as mentioned above and have oil consumption complaint.
    Vinu, how is the engine oil consumption now? It has been more than a month since you last updated regarding the engine consumption status.

    Did the problem get fixed?[/QUOTE]

    Hi Vipin, its already 1200km on odo from the day I made this jugaad and Till date no problem what so ever, No oil consumption, no oil leaks from anywhere, No oil level dip.[/QUOTE]

    Thank you very much for giving all these explanations.

    I would also be fixing the PCV valve.

    Incase of any doubt regarding the making of PCV orifice then I will contact you.

    I do not know much about bikes so I will be the fixing one in the pipe you have shown in the picture above.

    Thanks once again.

    Thumbs up Re: {Fix found} solution to Rapid Oil depletion problem in Pulsar 150 DTSi.

    Updating after 1700km on the odo from Last oil change, still there is No oil consumption, Never topped up in this interval, rode with full throttle and dead slow riding. this fix seems to be holding up very well.

    last oil changed:64300
    current odo: 66000
    oil used: Motul 3100
    top speed : 111 on odo.

    Thank you Vinu for providing solution for a chronic issue. However, have you found a better solution yet, may be a readily available part.
    Any suggestions from senior/experienced xbhpians on this JUGAD will be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi 0gravity,

    As I mentioned earlier I tried to search for this so called PCV valve in all dealerships even car dealerships, at present this is the only way to go.

    you could be more innovative and suggest something better which everybody could follow.

    Icon4 Re: {Fix found} solution to Rapid Oil depletion problem in Pulsar 150 DTSi.

    I am facing oil leakage issues on my 4 year old pulsar 220f.
    When i cruise more than 100 kmph, A lot of oil comes out from the breather pipe(which goes from the engine crank to fair filter box). When i checked the air filter box, The filter element ( which is foam) was dripping with oil.
    Recently i went on a long drive about 1400 kms. When leaving for the ride, The oil level was exactly in the middle of max and min.
    When i was returning i observed that the engine was heating up more & like a grinding noise, then i guessed it might be this oil leakage issue.
    I stopped the bike there itself then parked on the center stand, Let the engine cool for 25 - 30 min while i was having a tender coconut water with a cigarette .
    Then noticed that there is no oil to be seen in the reservoir at all !!
    Since i'm facing this problem for quite a while, I had carried the engine oil bottle in my saddle bag for emergency situations like this!.
    I filled like almost 200 to 250 ml oil to get the oil to show b/w max and min on the engine.

    By the way, I use Motul 5100 15w50 and the bike has run for around 40000 kms, Out of which i have used a k&n pod filter (RC1060) for more than 35000 kms then changed to stock filter recently. { P.S : initial bike run in was done with stock filter for 1180 kms }
    I really doubt If that K&N filter has damaged my piston rings and the cylinder block by letting dust particles inside! Which may be leading to a Blow by?
    I am also noticing oil leakage from the cylinder head which may be because the cylinder head seal / gasket is gone ??

    Guys, Please i Need help !! I would be grateful if someone in this forum throws light at this issue!

    I really don't mind spending some money on this problem because i really love my ride & respect it.
    Ride Hard, Ride Safe.

    Hi Shreyas,

    I have gone through the similar situation as yours, here is my two cents worth of advice for you.

    if the mileage is less than normal and have white smoke from exhaust, then it needs Bore kit replacement.

    if mileage is good and has only oil consumption issue you can go for the Modd stated in this Thread earlier.

    it will still need oil top up of 200~250ml after the mod but only once in every 2500km.

    for the oil leaking issue from Head, ask the service center mechanic they fill fix it with applying brown colored sealant(RTV)

    hope I have answered your query.

    regards,
    vinodh
