Neither my 16 Commando sf and 17 Domi naked have banjo bolts in the rocker covers.As it turned out I didn't need to fit a one way valve. I simply redid the plumbing (back to the MKI layout) and although I could have had the breather pipe terminate in the airbox I instead added a small oil separator just to see how effective my new plumbing was. Turned out it was very effective with only a tiny amount of oil making it into the separator.
Voodooo if your Naked still has the banjo bolts on the cam cover you might want to change the breathing back to the MKI style and just vent to a little oil separator and then to the air - works a treat for me. That way you can throw away the airbox oil bottle and never have oil going anywhere near the airbox (just remember to block the hole in the airbox where the breather hose used to go).
Both bikes are plumbed the same. And only the Domi gets oil in the air box. It literally gets oil to drip from the drain hose. The only difference between the two bikes are the Domi has a evap canister.
So you’re saying to eliminate the black plastic factory breather and plumbing and do what’s shown in the diagram you posted?
