Is it normal for crankcase vent tube to continually blow steam

I noticed on my ym 2210 the crankcase vent tube constantly blows steam, and the water recovery bottle is always about 2/3 rds full after about 5 minutes of run time. Is this normal ? Should I get a new radiator cap ?

Are you sure it is actually steam and not smoke? Some exhaust coming out of that tube is normal on all diesel engines. Coolant/steam- not so much.
