Oil out of Magneto Cover Plug

Shimming valves the other night I put the motor at TDC and oil was dripping out of the removed plug on the cover. I have had a few drips in the past but this time it dripped and continued to drip the entire time the plug was out. I estimate that there was a drip every 5 seconds. :bonk:

The bike was on a lift stand, (basically flat with the front end slightly lower than the back).

Any comments would be appreciated since I have never seen this to this extent and would like your input. Thanks :thumbsup:

I had the same issue a few weeks ago. I think my oil level was a bit high and the bike sat awhile wich caused more oil to come out. I was told here that it's no big deal :thumbsup:

No big deal it's normal.
