New to me 2003 sportster, not sure if this hose is supposed to be here or what...........seems like im getting a small drip of oil coming out of it now and then..........changed the oil last week, 3 qts, drove it some the last couple days, all was good, today I noticed a few drops on the garage floor..........seems to be coming from this hose and to the back of the air cleaner.

Gonna try these steps next.

Get a new air cleaner

Change out the oil & filter again

Any other ideas from you guys to try.

Thanks for helping the new guy out.

That hose looks like the carb float bowl overflow line, not a breather hose. Maybe some oil is following that line from the bottom of the carb. Could be some oil from the carb breathers dribbling down the rear of the carb and down that line.
I would take the air cleaner apart and wash the filter and inside of the cover, that's where the breather air/oil mist accumulates and eventually starts dripping from.
