oil dripping from hoses

Hey All. New to the forum as i just bought a k3 with 50000 km. Would anyone know what would cause the two hoses hanging down on the right side to drip oil. It doesn't seem to be alot but i have to be careful everywhere i park not to ruin drivways, etc. i'll stop at an intersection and see some drops that fell during the red light. The oil level is correct.
thanks
Mike

Check for oil in the airbox. If the bike was ever on its side or the oil level overfilled it's easy for the breather to pass oil into the airbox. Then it can pass out the aitbox drain hose. Once the hose drips oil, it can get on the end of the fuel tank filler drain too.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Okay, i know what happened. I made the same mistake the dealer made. when checking the level by myself i didn't tilt the bike over enough. it wasn't til i had my ex (long story) check it while sitting level on it, it showed right to the top of the window. i'll drain it right away but i hope no damage caused.
thanks
mike
