Missing hose on engine

Hello everyone, I recently purchased a 2006 Polaris Sportsman EFI as a fixer up er. In the process of fixing it up I noticed that every time I started the it up that the header/exhaust manifold was smoking as a result of being in contact with oil. Initially I assumed the oil was leaking from the header.

After further investigation that was not the case. The culprit is what appears to be a missing oil outlet hose of some sort, that is spraying engine oil directly on the header. The "Oil outlet" (for lack of a better name) is right above the oil pump inlet and out let hoses. (see attached picture)

If anyone has any idea what might be missing or what that outlet might be i would greatly appreciate the help!

Is there a hole/ nipple on your air box? May be a crankcase breather hose. Most attach to the airbox.
that looks like where the oil tank breather line connects. Number 1 in the pic. Goes to the top of the oil tank. Number 8 in the second pic.
