Change your oil and filter to besure that its done right. Make sure it is on level ground when checking the oil. Top it off slowly so you don't over fill it. mrthandrew is probably right.

Totally agree!! Make sure the engine is warmed up before checking the oil level. Use the Owners Manual as a guide.

If your oil level is fine do you do long wheelies? I know if I went riding and did wheelies for an extended amount of time a little bit would get in my air box.

This has happened twice with me :
Once when I stood it on the rear grab bar and the second when the engine got too hot.
