That's a somewhat comforting thought, I'll order a new gasket and throw it in there to see what happens. The bike has 22,000 miles ish on it, and it was pretty neglected so I'm honestly not thinking the previous owners ever had the valves checked. I would guess that the head has been sealed all the same since it was manufactured. They didn't even take it in to get the rear brake recall fix!
I checked out other threads but none really mentioned the oil on the coils, just the oil on the plugs. I'll conduct a compression test once I get it put back together some just to make sure the internals are okay, it seems that people commonly confuse carbon on the plug threads as oil which I'm hoping is all I did, so I'll double check those when I get home today. I really don't want to have to do valve seat or piston ring work. I'll post some pictures of everything for reference after work.
