t595 oil leak

Hello guys/girls, I have a 1998 triumph t595-.23000 miles on the clock. I purchased the bike last august- since I have had it I have a tiny amount of oil coming out of the oil filler cap. I replaced the oil cap and rubber washer with new ones. I still have the problem. I have changed the oil and filter and made sure its not over filled. Someone said it could be a breather hose blocked? Im hoping someone could advise me on this and praying its not a piston etc. Thanks in advance, lance

drop the sump and see if your one of these is working properly.pressure relief valve. spring loaded.centre should push in and spring back,but more likely a blocked breather.

t595 breather

After a couple of minutes mooching around the 'net, it looks like it's on the left of the crankcase (as you sit on the bike), an ovalish plate, held on with 5 bolts.... looks like there are moving parts behind the plate...... check the hose is clear before you remove the plate.

also there`s something about a centrifugal breather on this model. Anycase the pipe usually go`s into the airbox.
