theres a big hose going from the head to the airbox on the back and right around that area in the air box is oil. not much at all. whats causing that? isnt that to create a vacuum in the head so oil doesnt do that?

no, it's normal. The air box gets oil in it from the crankcase breather hose. Nothing to worry about.

yep normal.. what is has little cap on most airboxes to drain little amounts in there, or hose for it. if there is alot of oil.. its usually from overfilling oil in crankcase.
