Just a thought, perhaps it is the automatic chain oiler pipe. Most people block that line off these days.

Thats is probably not what it is, but would be an easy fix. Let us know how you get along,
that is where the engine finaly ends up venting. the engine vents to the oil tank than the tank vents to the air filter. I would try running the oil level on the LOW mark first to give it more room in the oil tank . if this does not fix it than you might have to much blowby in the engine. yuo could rerout the vent to the rear of the bike.

I would run a leak down test but it sounds like it very well could leaky rings. how many miles on this top end?? did you try the droped oil level?
