2005 BF oil leaks from vent tube after riding??????

I have a 2005 BF 750. I installed snorkels after riding it a couple hours I noticed oil on garage floor. It looks like it's coming from crankcase vet tube. Does anyone know why this is happening ??

2" snorkels will increase the restriction and thus the vacuum level on the airbox at higher RPMs and that will cause more oil to be pulled through the vent tube during wheelies and steep climbs but...the vent tube itself should not leak, the oil enters the box and either flows to the intakes or/and some of it will get trapped in the collector tube just below the vent port, That collector tube MUST be capped or plugged as it will pull unfiltered air directly into the engine otherwise. Oil coming from that port can look like it's coming from the vent tube so better check.
