Filter question

well today i was prepping my bike to ride and i found droplets of oil on the floor....i check my filter and it has oil on it along with my headers.....so i remove my left side farings to assess the situation and it seems as though that the oil is just leaking from the seal between the oilfilter seat and the oil filter gasket.....so i wipe dry and no oil rushes to meet the gap...so next i figure why not tighten more to check see if its loose....so i grab with my hand and tighten it more to my surprise it went about a 1/8 of a turn to a 1/4 of a turn....i am using a wix oil filter but next time i will go honda. did anyone ever have this problem could it be due to rubber swelling or somthing else.

thanks

Add a new washer next time you change oil & use a proper oil filter.
