That is an issue I have not addressed yet all I have done is make the stock
breather able to flow better and run a hose to the back of the bike.

 maybe someone has an idea they would like to suggest???????

If you did nothing but ad water injection yes you would lose power BUT
with water injection you can run more boost and/or ignition advance
