oil leaking

Hi! im Alex, long time advrider reader but new to the dr200 thread

i just recently bought a 2008 DR200se with 32000 miles on the clock. Since then i've noticed that oil is leaking from the top of the motor coming out from a screw. i think is the valve area.

What would you think it could be? im the third owner, just did an oil change last weekend, added synthetic. Since i've added the whole Liter, instead of the 850mL (150mL more than specified) im guessing that the extra oil has no room inside that roaring motor and has to come out somehow.

and how do you guys get rid of the smell of fuel? my girlfriend is complaining of keeping the smell of gasoline on her beatiful person

thanks guys!
