It is not big deal, they all do it.

We made a kit for the Teryx to stop the oil problem, we call it the STOP kit which stands for stop the oil problem

is the oil in the air box still caused by wheelies in the FI machines? or just carbed?

My '05 and '08 had the problem of oil in the airbox but only if you stand it up on the tail end,purposely or not!!!:D
A-ARM bushings are common to wear out with large tires/muddy conditions.I've replaced my '08 bushings recently,but warranty covered it.
Backfiring occurs on all brutes when engine is reved to high RPM's and let off causing back pressure from the large V-TWIN engine.

don't overfill them either, you can run them a little lower and it will help prevent this

Just run your oil half way up on the dipstick that will solve most of it and for it useing oil yes it sips on it.It is the big v twin they all do its very comen.:cool:

You did not mention loosing enough oil to have to add every week.You said oil in the airbox.You're talking about "excessive" oil in the airbox.That is totally different.
You said it "backfires."Did you hear a big "burp" like noise come from the airbox and then have alot of oil in your airbox? If so,you might have a blown top end.This happened to me on my '05 when I took in a little water/sand in the airbox and didn't know.

overfilled the oil

I have a 06 brute force 650i. I made the mistake of overfilling the oil and I ran it. Now theres oill all over the engine, the air filter box, and the bike has absolutely no power its sputtering. Anyone have suggestions?

clean up the excess oil, you've saturated the airfilter and it's choking
