I am a bit unsure what your question is.
There is crankcase oil behind the stator cover, so having some oil drain out when it is removed is normal.

Not sure how you separate and identify old oil from fresh oil after riding 200 miles.

I'm lost as well, the R/R is located under the battery box and it is normal to have oil there (engine). Sounds like you need a stator replacement!

oil in stator

ok with 3 screw cover off stator is full of oil never seen in any other bike stators always dry. this bike it is soaked in oil and tilted bike oil just ran out though maybe a seal was gone on crank betwenn crank case and stator case lookin for those with experience with these bikes, wondering if stator is supposed to be covered in oil??

Yup, normal, especially if you on the side stand, you'll get a bit more oil running out then if you were on the center stand. but there SHOULD be oil there.

When I did my pickup coil mod I got like 6 drops of oil when I removed the cover, but it was up on the center stand and not leaning. I'm guessing you would see more if the crank case was over full. The largest problem I think is that the bike isn't charging the battery.

a 2 stroke bike has a dry stator, including cr/kx/rm/yz's and the vintage street 2 smokers like my rd350's.

a 4 stroke has a wet stator, including the vn750 and the 4 stroke motocrossers. it is 100% normal.

you would have a blown seal on a 2 stroke, but not on the vn750.
