They will almost always ooooze a little bit. Not anything to worry about.

Is you're oil overfilled? That could be the problem. Unscrew the overfill bolt (behind shifter), let any excess oil flow out, screw it back in, start it, check oil level...if any oil flowed out than it was overfilled, it should now be perfect.

Some oil will get pushed out that tube, it's normal. The Honda has the breather tube routed to the airbox and "T'd" down to an oil collection tube with a cap. You have to drain it every once in a while. It's normal.
