The EMPI kit is a good way to go 
per Vigil however....

use of the "one way"  filtered (vented)plastic oil filler cap in place of the 
solid (un-vented) cap will allow a limited amount of "inbound" air into  the 
crankcase and thus actually aid in crankcase pressure/vapor evacuation.

  I probably should have asked this much earlier....but oh well..
  My 1275, now has a belt drive cam...and thus no crankcase breather on the 
timing cover.. and of course no side covers and no breather there.
  There is however, a breather on the valve cover.
  Considering that the 1098 sucks air out of the crankcase, just above the 
lifters, and the pushrod holes are quite open.. I figure I should be able to 
vent the engine sufficiently via the breather on the rocker cover.. but i may 
want to widen the tiny hole (~2mm - 3mm now) in the breather pipe.
  Has anyone done this and found it to be succesful or otherwise?
  (should be at All-British Display right now...but..."needs must, when the 
Devil vomits into your kettle".....or jams your ribcase in first... whichever 
the case may be.)
