Yup....been done by lots of us.

Some ideas in the wKB.... https://sites.google.com/site/vstar1...-modifications

Keep in mind that there is a oil mist that will accumulate....which is why many of us also have a catch bottle or something along those lines to prevent oil from getting all over things.

Yes and no issues. Some just route the hose to the bottom of the frame. I prefer using a filter. I routed mine to the left side of the frame and attached it to the rear horn mount on my Roadstar. This is the filter I use.
