Nope its just oiled from the oil pump. The stator is your bike's version of a alternator. Leave the bike on the side stand which will pull most of the oil out of that area.
Pull off the old cover
clean gasket off engine case
replace new gasket on engine with some high temp RTV silicone
put on new cover and torque bolts.
Now you will find that sense the stator uses magnets it is sometimes a firm pull to remove the cover.
