    most guys use a redbull can. you can easily make one out of PVC as well. (pipe + 2 caps, drill a hole and run your tubes)

    i think it mentions something int he rule book about having a bellypan and whether or not you need one.

    some guys run both options.

    here you go

    Route all vent, breather, or overflow tubes coming from the engine, transmission, or radiator into either a heatresistant
    catch can of at least 350cc capacity, or the air box, which must be sealed to prevent fluid leakage. The
    airbox may remain unsealed provided the bike is fitted with a closed belly pan.

    We wont fail you in tech if you have all hoses run to your belly pan, if your belly pan does not have any holes in it.

    But on my own bike, I run a full belly pan and have a catch can as well. The catch can keeps the hoses contained and doesn't have the same chance as that drip being blown on the rear tire or messing up somewhere else on the bike.

    Most guys just ziptie a pop or Redbull can (with the top cutoff) on to their engine case somewhere and then run the lines into that.
