01 sp3 air box breather has a little oil dripping

Does anyone know if there is a tad too much oil in the bike if it will leak out a little ? I noticed today I had a few drops under the left side of the bike. Looks like the air box breather hose that exits the left side of bike dripped a few drops of oil? I just changed the oil with no problem and ran MOBILE 1 15w-50 in it. What would cause the air box to have oil in it ?

I think I had too much oil in it. I just pulled about enough to fill about 2 inches of oil up in a quart jug. I havent tried it yet but I think there was just too much base pressure and it just pushed it up to the airbox. Probably have to take apart the airbox tonight and clean it out.
