Final Drive Venting Oil

Not knowing Diddly about bikes... every little thing that appears to be a problem is a MAJOR problem to me.
I ride in the cold and was having problems with my final drive, venting oil out the top "thingy" I had picked up a basket case honda and had the final drive from that one put on... but Im still experiencing the same problem. I cleaned the final drive really well of oil and noticed that the oil wasn't coming from the seal but only from the vent. Drat !!!!
Since then I've read that itS a common occurrence in cold weather.
I changed the oil in my final drive and since it doesn't seem to be leaking. Perhaps I didn't set the bike over on its kickstand and I might have over filled it previously.
All seems ok now. Any thoughts?
