Before you spend the big bucks on a pretty oil return line, myself and many, many others have used the $2.00 splice kit (home made) and I don't know anybody that's had a failure. Sure makes it easier to replace the water pump kit or do a clutch basket change out in the future.

One of the beautiful things about riding solo is the quality of the social experience.
