You might've just had too much oil in her. Did you do the last oil change? I recently had an issue with oil coming out at my filler cap. It did shoot off but it did leak all over my right foot/boot, swingarm and even rear tire. Turns out I had over-filled with oil AND my oil filler cap O-ring had broken. I dumped all the oil got a new O-ring and filled it to the correct limit, per owner's manual, and all good since then. Hope it's this simple for you
