My manual says:CRANKCASE BREATHER
- Service more frequently when ridden in rain, at full throttle, or after the scooter is washed or overturned. Service if the deposits level can be seen in the transparent section of the breather hose.
The air cleaner chamber drain hose is (and their description is lousy) under the left side of the bike just forward of the center stand.
Remove the air cleaner chamber drain hose plug from the hose end and drain deposits into a suitable container, then reinstall the hose end plug.
Sorry, can't get you a picture but it's easy to spot.
Hope this helps.

That's a good reminder, I know the older Goldwings would actually begin to run rough because the drain container would fill up and the gunk would eventually back up the tube until it built up in the air filter box enough to get sucked down the engine. Newer ones have a plugged drain tube like the SW. I check mine with every oil change which seems to work out well.
