I have an 07 WR450 and I am getting oil in the air box. Is there anything that would cause this beside to much oil in the engine?

It has been when i am working it preaty hard up hill that i have noticed it. havn't went down for a while it hurts to bad. I think I will try running it with the oil on the low end of the dip stick. I'll also check the rings. Thanks guys.
