Unless it appears to be blocked I would actively discourage its removal unless you are fitting a remote breather. The original fitment is a horrible, flimsy, piece of shit that is likely to snap if even slightly over tightened.

Hi Folks, Yeah, I'm with Pete on that, Pisano.
When I got my GRiSO I too followed the instructions in the workshop manual & the breather cap just crumbled away when I got the spanner on it; fortunately it left a piece sticking out so I could get the mole-grips on it to unscrew what remained. I was surprised how pricey the replacement was seeings as it's just a breather plug!
I'm many miles & oil changes down the line since then on my GRiSO & have always left that breather well alone.
My advice; don't touch it! Cheers

Shocking I removed mine as a matter of course, removed the cap, cleaned assembled then a few weeks later replaced with tasty stainless one.
