    I've read the other posts on this issue and thought I'd share my experience. 2013 V7 Special. I was also getting a small puddle in the airbox. With my last oil change( I have the GTX sump extender) I only added 2 litres of oil not 2.5. I checked the airbox after a 25 mile ride mostly at 70 and then about 5 at 40-45. When i checked there was just a light film no puddles. I will watch it going forward but I think it's resolved.

    Over-filling will cause oil in the air box. But on the other side you want as much oil in the sump as it will hold before oil starts ending up in the air box.
