Recently bought 250 xcf-w fitted with the 280 big bore (8 hours old) and fitted with the jd jetting kit. Bike runs fine and very responsive but after some recent servicing repairs noticed the breather pipe connection to the carb has been blocked off and siliconed up. This leaves the breather un-connected.
Should this be filtered or connected to the airbox or just left hanging as is?

Thats been done to stop getting oil in the airbox boot.

So long as the hose is long enough to go up then a long way down you should not get stuff sucked up.

Yes, I would. Something like an RFS one 59031050100 ENGINE BREATHER TUBE 00 £6.76 or buy a mtre of 8 or 9mm fuel injection hose from Halfords or similar.
