Oil leak

I have a 2013 Muscle. It just turned 9k miles.
I have noticed some light mist of oil coming from, what looks like the top of the engine. It is not enough to leave a spot on the floor, but it is covering quite a big area.
Any help would be much appreciated.

It's almost aways from the breather hoses. Either cracked or someone had the lower airbox off and failed to hook up the front breather bullet or hose correctly.

I also have a slight oil leak from the rear jug, traced to between the rocker cover and barrel. Thought I'd just torque down the rocker cover bolts and found out one couldn't be gotten to due to being under the frame and a brace welded to the frame. Drilled a hold into the best spot without weakening the frame so I could get to the bolt. Torqued in order and to correct torque. Didn't cure problem. Next is to pull off rocker cover and replace gasket. Just for info to let you know of another oil leak.
