Regarding the oil...what method did you use to check it? Did you check it cold? Did you run it for about 30 seconds, turn it off and then check it? If not, then you added WAAAY too much oil and need to drain and recheck/refill. If you need a manual, check the Performance Index sticky for the link to a free one...SC

Glowing pipe is normal if not riding - many don't notice it because you really can't see it during the day.
How are you checking your oil? There's only one correct way to check it properly - everything else will give you a false reading.
I have a feeling you checked the oil wrong, therefore overfilled the bike, then it started spooging out the breather, running down the tube and dripping out the bottom - a relatively common issue.
Yes - Yamaha of Australia has our manuals in PDF format - VERY cool!
If you overfilled, use a syringe and clean hose to suck the excess oil back out the filler - beats draining.
Just threw up a pic - didn't have anything close up, but did have one of that side of the bike, drew in the breather tube (it's black rubber) and the drip location. - sorry about the dirty bike - this one actually get ridden
