Default Oil around heads

I've been getting a film of oil around my heads, it's very light never a drip. It seems to be getting worse/spreading. I installed a crank vent last year hoping it would help resolve the problem but doesn't seem to have done much. Is this common? Is it possible to snug up the bolts without messing with anything in the head? I probably won't touch it until I actually see it drip.

Do you have a stock top airbox. Or a VBAK / BAK. Is there a film of o on top the chrome valve covers too? Or only there on the left side plug areas?

There doesn't appear to be oil on the valve covers, I did consider it might be from the vbak filters, I'll have to pull the tank off and give a good look.

*now that I think about it I believe I overfilled the oil last season perhaps this could be part of the problem?*

I agree when in doubt always start with a clean slate. That vapor/mist could be from anywhere.

Maybe I'm missing it but honestly it looks like dust or something I don't see oil mist. Give it a good cleaning like other said and verify you've got the right amount of oil in there very easy to overfill the bike with oil if the proper checking procedure isn't followed.
