RSV4 ´09 oil breather

Hi guys,

I finally have an RSV4 and the Diva is playing up already!

There seems to be a "breather hole" on the right hand side of the engine (see pictures), I've checked with another RSV4 rider and it looks the same for him.
However my bike is coughing oil out there. It's not much, more like an oily bubble every now and then, but it messes up the whole engine casing. And is quite concerning of course!
I first had the regular amount of oil in it, changed the filter and went down to only 3.5L. But it's still doing it, even in idle!
I'm using Motul 300V if that matters.

Any ideas or advice is appreciated!!
