SOURCE: oil leaks from breather box
From your brief description It sounds like you are experiencing Crank Case pressure build up.
I presume your ZZR is of High mileage or possibly previous owners havn't serviced it regularly.
The problem being the compression Piston Rings wear and allow Blow Back gasses into the crank case there by building up pressure, this in turn sends an oil film up the breather tube to your air box resulting in your problem.
You could try an oil & filter change (Synthetic) Top jolly with maybe an additive plus similar for the fuel i.e. Red-Ex or similar, it may help but I doubt a cure.
If you want you could extend the breather pipe away from the box into a drip can or similar, be sure to filter it as you don't want to get contamination down in the cases.
Hope this sorts it for you?
Please press the Blue Button for appraisal of my FREE! Effort.
Thank You! & Good Luck.

SOURCE: 1999 VULCAN HAS OIL LEAKING
hi, sounds like the oil seal in the rocker cover has failed, remove the rocker cover and you will see a rubber seal, this seals the oil inside the cover, however when the seal fails around the spark plug hole, oil leaks into spark plug well and out of weep hole.
