I think it is normal.
How do you check your oil.
Do you warm it up then let it sit for a minute then check it without screwing the dipstick in.
How many hours on the bike.

I get a bit on my boot and frame when I ride hard, but the oil level always look good on both my 07yz450f (125 hours) & 12 yz450f (11 hours).
