Need help identifying a part

Right i front of the oil reservoir, there's a black cylinder that looks like a car oil filter. In the back of it there's a 4 in hose that goes to what I think is the oil pump. (Metal and about the size of 1/2 bar of soap.) What is the black cylinder? The hose is loose and i need to know what it is so I can replace it. I could just take the hose to the shop, but I still want to know what that part is.

Soundman, it would help out a lot if we knew what you ride. This way you wouldn't get smarta$$ answer like, oh that's the whojockapivy that regulates the blinker fluid .

That will be your AIS ass'y.(air induction system) It puts air in the exhaust for when you let off the gas.

Cool. Why would it be leaking oil?

The only way it would have oil is thru the air intake as that is were it gets the air to put in the
exhaust - but I think the oil is coming from some other place higher up?

Guess I'll have to take the fuel tank off to get a better look. Maybe valve cover gaskets?
Also there was oil in my air filter housing. A buddy told me that a clogged air filter would suck oil into the air system. Could that put oil in the part I described?

Over filling the oil will put it in the air filter also and some may be road grim.
I would clean it real good and keep a eye on it for awhile.
