KTM 525 engine oil in air filter

I checked the air filter yesterday and noticed some engine oil at the bottom of the air filter. This was first ride after an oil change. Any idea what's going on?

If it was ok before o/c then you must have overfilled it. ?

That's what I figured but am wondering if that may have caused any damage?

Yes it could be due to overfilled engine oil, or it could be filter oil from an over saturated air filter.

+1 At each oil & filter change, refill it with exactly 1200ml of oil.

Is the crankcase vent tube unrestricted and hooked up correctly? Blowby? Too much oil? Some combination thereof?
Sounds like some excess crankcase pressure.
