700 Siphon Break Question

Pretty soon you guys are going to get tired of my stupid newbie questions.

Got my Siphon Break from JBS. I was wondering if the hose could be extended. I was thinking about mounting the tank/filter kinda up in the corner behind the passenger seat right above where the top connection is for the passenger seat belt. Between that and my top is a nice little area that would get the filter/tank up out of the way and also protect it from rain. Any issues with doing this????

Here ya go. Just got some 1/2" vacuum hose and a connector and a couple of hose clamps. There is a flat tab on the bottle that I drilled a hole through and ran a wire tie through it around the cage.

People do it because when you add a msd or something like a msd to the Rhino it raises the rpms and the rhino does not like that. so it starts blowing oil back into the air filter box. So if you add a siphon break it will let the oil go up the hose into the bottle and then comes back down and it stops the oil going into the filter box.

you make it sound bad... lol

Rhino's love MSD's or Dynateks whatever you run. what happened is (even in stock form) when you are hard on the gas for longer periods of time the crankcase pressure gets high and it pushes oil out if the overflow. so instead of dumping it on the air filter, you can catch it and it will flow back into the case.

with my Dynatek I have only had it happen once when it spilled out through the catch. I was wide open for much longer than I like to be with basically no load, but I was holding off a rzr lol

Firefighter, I like that! Is that under the engine cover? I guess you have a 660?

Yes 660 and I don't do any underwater stuff so I hope this is high enough ! Should be, I'll just have to keep an eye on it.
HAHA I guess if I get water on it, I've got water in my intake "again"
And Yes, it all under the engine cover.
