998 Blow-By - January 15, 2008, 01:02 PM

I just read a new bunch of
Here is a part of it:
A small number of Ducati 998's, maybe one percent, have been reported to build up so much crankcase pressure at high revs that excessive entrained oil is forced/sucked into the airbox through the crankcase ventilation system, resulting in excessive oil consumption.

Here is the article in full:

The Ducati of NA officially saying that it happens to 3%,
I say itís much higher.

What are your experiences?
Post up.

Not too many 998 owners on here however I did not excessive crankcase oil in the airbox vent on my 996 when I did wheelie it on some rides. Same thing on my S2R dark monster.

I bought a 998 a couple of months ago and the previous owner mentioned that he was getting oil up into the airbox but the dealer did some kind of fix and it was no longer an issue. I've only put 120-30 miles on it so I can't really say much other than I haven't had a problem. I just went out into the garage to take a look and the setup on my bike looks like the first photo which I assume is stock.

What's up, are you losing oil to the airbox? You might want to call Ducpond.
