    is it coming out the breather and into the carb or vlowing back from the intake .. could be a few things

    Overfilled with oil
    oil contamination
    breather system problems

    A few things could cause that.

    Over filled, bad umbrella valves in the heads, sustained high speed driving, oil pump alignment.
