You be alright my man :)
It's a breather hose, and oil gets thrown into it-totally normal.

Have you changed your oil? Most lickly yes. How much did you put in? Could you have over filed it?

Mine drips a little after a hard ride. Just enough to put a few drops on the floor of my van

Unless it is a lot (more than 100cc!!) Dont worry

Are you sure you have the right amount of oil in the bike? Check it right after running. Mine does when I overfill it.

Good luck,
