Valve checking-possible oil leak

This may turn out to be a dumb question, but it has been quite a while since I checked the valve clearances on my 03 WR450. When I removed the side plug to access the nut to set TDC, a lot of oil poured out. I don't remember oil being in that chamber before. It looks like that would mess up the copper windings.

Am I missing something or do I have a big problem?

The stator works in an oil bath, is totally normal

Good. Thanks.
