I bought a tornado 650 which I'm halfway through restoring,there are two rubber pipes attached to the crankcase which are just bent and pointing down it doesn't look right to me,also there are outlets on each rocker cover,I assume they should be connected to something ?

That Benelli Tornado 650S on the WildGuzzi website is my current restoration project. If you need a PDF of the parts manual or Service Manual send me your email and I will send them to you when I get back home after November 28th.

Breather pipes

The engine breathers and the two from the rocker covers should go to a catch tank under the seat. Is there one fitted there?
If not let me know as I think I have a spare up in the garage loft.

The rubber breather hoses from the rocker cover and the crankcase breather are open ended. The rocker breathers are banded together back of the seat and then run parallel along the right side and through a clip on the tool tray, and finally through a rubber ring attached to the rear fender. open to the atmosphere. The two short crankcase hoses are open ended behind the side covers, no catch tank is in the parts manual and my bike did not have any catch tank when I bought it.

Apologies
You are correct the breather tank was only listed for the series 1 kick start model which I have! Surprised they dropped it for the electric start models as it is a handy little gismo which stops oil breather mist going everywhere. Maybe it was due to the additional electrics required for the electric start model meaning there was no room under the seat.

I have 2 series 1 bikes. They have a large breather box mounted under the seat. I have been unable to find much documentation on these bikes. I was able to purchase a parts catalog printed by Cosmopolitan Motors, the original importer. There are currently some for sale on ebay. This is the same info on the website of the German parts suppliers, but in English.

Jim,

Funny to recognize you from another forum (Wild Guzzi). Let me say "Hi."

I'm on the Benelli forum because I've got a Wards/Benelli 350 single.

Joe
