Slight oil leak on right side.

Pulled my skid plate off to change oil and noticed there was a little oil residue on right side. The drain bolt and oil filter were dry. Looks like it is coming from a little 4" rubber hose below water pump on crankcase. I think I might of put a bit too much oil in on last fill up. Does anyone know if this is an overflow? I would of thought if u put too much oil in, it would blow by and come out air filter box.
Any ideas?

That's the puke tube from the water pump. It originates at the #3 dual seal. Either coolant or oil will run out of the tube if the seal fails on one side.

Either that or a bit of foreign material is trapped at the seal edge.
