I thought I would share these pictures I took the other day.
Many times people ask about what you need to vent and what you do not.
In this picture (2008 Brute 750), you can see that there are 4 tubes ran to the pod. Nice of kawasaki to make a row of metal tubes for them to connect to.

Here you can see the 4 tubes. This is located under the display pod right where the handles bars mount.


here's what they are.
(In pic above from LEFT to RIGHT) Radiator Fan Vent, Gas tank vent, front diff, rear diff


here's a view from the front of the bike



Hope this help some folks learn a little more about their Brute.

I dont think they did that on the 07 an earlier ones... I think they are just tucked up under there on ours... not sure though as I've never taken the top of the POD off.

It does go into the frame at the rear of the bike. The one i labeled gas tank vent runs into the frame also at the front of the bike. I can only assume that is what it is for.

The gas tank vent goes in the rear of the frame by the tank, then comes back out of the frame up front close to the shifter, on 08's

From the factory my Prairie vents were hooked up just like that in the pod. I did away with all that and tied them in to my belt exhaust snorkel.

To summarize it is this..
People take a resevoir from a YFZ450, bascially a platic container with a vent, and IN and an OUT.
The crankcase vent runs to the IN on the catchcan and the out runs back to the motor. People are tapping into the valve covers for the return line. This is where the oil, puked into the catchcan from the crankcase during wheelies, runs back into the engine.
here's a pic of the catch can from the yfz450
