Make sure you remove every drain plug when draining your oil as well as the dipstick and filler cap - so as not to create a vacuum.

And I've never cared the way the manufacturers route the oil breather into the airbox. That is dirty air back there and there is no filter on the end of the hose. I have always capped those off and routed the whole works upwards from the head or crankcase (depending on model and where the breather starts from) and put a uni filter on it. Routing up, it will still breathe, but the oil has a chance to flow back to the engine rather than downhill to the airbox where it will never get back in.

thats the thing i thought i had over filled it to but when i checked the dip stick it said it was perfect level so i continued riding for about 45 mins when i stopped to check again there was alot more oil in there when checked oil level it was half empty so it seems to come out even though it was not over filled. i havent lost any power other wise she is running perfectly
I over filled mine when I first got it. I drained it and then added a quart, but since I forgot to remove one of the drain plugs it had an extra cup or so of oil in it but the dipstick read perfectly. After I hit a few woops, oil was pouring out of my airbox via the crankcase vent hose. Just drain\change the oil exactly as per the manual and clean out the airbox\vent hose and you should be fine. Good luck
