A number of guys have this problem.
One member here found that he cured his by allowing a better "seating" of the cap before installing the screws. Seems if you throw the thing in and bolt it down. It flexes and doesn't allow the O ring to really seal. He pressed it in and turned it back and fourth as if screwing it in and out a couple times. This better allowed the O ring to press into the bore sealing it and stopping the oil from passing by the seal and into the box....

Yea I seen that vid of him seating it better. I was one of the first people with this problem. There has to be a way to solve it.

I hope my cure works for you guys, I haven't seen oil since I've done this and if you look at my thread there was a ton in the air box before!
