Head vent line modification questions

The vent line that goes from my valve cover to the airbox is always making a mess. Oil leaks out the airbox and onto the swingarm. If the bike is dropped on it's right side oil goes everywhere. Plus I don't like the idea of hot oily air being drawn into the engine. If I just put a uni filter on the end of the line does it matter if it is higher or lower than the spot where it enters the valve cover. If it is lower it seems that the oil would just collect in the line, clog the filter, and keep air from being drawn through it. Would it being higher pose any problems?

Put it higher if possible.
You can also build a vented catch can.

Very funny Tyrdman. At first I thought it was because I was overfilling the oil and now after draining it and putting in a bit less it still does it. Especially when I spend time on one wheel or no wheels. Going to try and get it done today. Hopefully I don't get to test whether or not it leaks when the bike is on its side tomorrow.

Still hurts a bit but I rode a little yesterday and it's not too bad. Probably in for tomorrow but I'll just take it easy.
