Do you have a photo of the top plate installed? I have had horrible experiences with communication with racingline. It has taken me weeks to get responses from them...ate late update from my side, sorry about that
So as I said in my OP that I have emailed RL, and the communication was great TBH,
they offered me to send me a new "gasket" and advised me to use a bead of silicone around the area, to help to stop the leak..
I told them for the premium that I have paid to buy what supposed to be the best Catch Can in the market I expect it to work out of the box, and for you to ask me to fix a common issue is really disappointing, so unless you can guarantee me that new gasket will fix my problem without adding any silicone sealant it will be fine with me, otherwise I'll have to return both kits back to usp (bought 2 kits).
A few emails back and forth, they decided to send me 2x complete kits which included a revised baseplate which completely eliminated the leak,
The new design has a better gasket, recessed mounting location for the top plate, the securing bolts now are from the top instead of the bottom.
Sorry if the picture is too big posting from tapatalk
Your K&N filter didn't get dirty overnight and it wasn't smoking before the Racingline OCC. Earlier posts said that you need to use sealant around the base plate. I would have bought the Spulen OCC. That's what I have and I've never had exhaust smoke.I enter this discussion since I've just mounted a Racingline CC on my 7 R HGP 480.
After the installation and the first motor start there was a lot of oil smoke coming out of the exhaust. I drove around a few km and it disappeared.
The next morning it was there again and quite embarrassing ...
I've checked the installation and even fitted a new seal - no result, same problem.
Might it be a filthy K+N air filter (will clean it tomorrow)? Or has anyone another tip? THANKS!!
You absolutely sure it isn't just condensation? If it's oily smoke you have bigger issues.Thanks for your replies. I'll try the sealant first before switching to another CC.
It stops smoking when the oil reaches around 90 degrees C.
If you ordered with a credit card just dispute the charge. They'll respond then.100% sure: it is oil smoke. Just disassembled the CC and put the original back in. No issues ...
No visible leaks anywhere. This is really very puzzling and Racingline is not responding to my questions ...
