Leaking oil after ear shave.

Hey all, I ended up performing the ear shave mod on my '94 VN750. I didn't rejet but I'm considering it in the future. Today I walked in the garage after my bike sat for a couple days and I noticed a pool of clean oil under the bike. It appears to be near my shifting lever but think I followed the wet surfaces to this hose that I completely forgot about, it originally went to the airbox and I noticed it was wet. Could this be the oil? What is this hose for and how should I go about plugging it up? Seems like its pretty high pressure, should I plug it at all or is there something I forgot to do on this procedure?

Thanks in advance.

Crankcase vent. Needs a hose with a filter on the end, and run somewhere above the hole in the block, so oil can't just blow out.. My filter is on one of the bolts that held an air filter housing, below the right side neck cover.
