    Vent hose from crankcase breather. Unhook it and put a filter on the crankcase

    It's cylinder pressure blowing by and causing crankcase pressure. This is blowing some oil out the only vent it has into the airbox. The easiest solution is what Bryan said of putting a filter on the vent and disconnecting it from the airbox. Dont forget to plug the hole in the airbox.
