The oil coming from crankcase breather, yes, it is a well known problem and the breather box should be changed under warranty. The service called me already to change the box, but for the moment I think about to use this oil coming from crankcase,... hmm... as a chain oil!

For the moment the thing that I do, is very basic. Put a longer pipe to the breather, and cut around the beginning of the chain (close to the front sprocket)

As I see after 250km ride, the oil could be a little too much:

The next level; arrange the pipe until the rear sprocket, and may be a smaller size pipe.

I would be careful doing this, the original pipe is closed off for a few reasons, one of which is to stop dirty air being pulled into the air filter box, and probably after the air filter to boot.
I could of course be completely wrong
