Over pressure popping out the shifter plug

Fellow riders, I’m having a problem with oil shooting out of the plug where the shifter goes into the crank case. I understand that this is an issue with a vent hose somewhere near the carburetor, but I cannot find any diagrams or pictures of the hose that would be giving me trouble. If anybody can assist me with this I would appreciate it.

It’s the hose that goes into the back of the stock airbox. It comes off the top of the front cyl.

Like DD said, from top of front cylinder, drops down on left rear to below intake manifold then 90 degrees to airbox.

Must be some weird gyrations of the airbox to kink that hose. It is a soft hose, best to replace. Only 2 hoses to the airbox, PAIR and the vent hose. I can shine a light from the left side and see the vent hose all the way to the airbox.

Push the shifter seal back on again.

It will not copy/paste..got it.
