Spark Plugs

Spark Plugs Changed the other day and they were drenched in oil. I'm no expert but that doesn't sound good what could be causing that?

Piston rings, valve seals, leaking fuel injectors (plugs would be wet with fuel in this case, but sometimes its hard to tell). Nothing good I'm sure. Do a wet and dry compression test and let us know the results.

How would you go about running a wet/dry compression text? I'm having the same problem with the oil in the in the spark plugs but my bike doesn't fire up. But when I clean them she'll fire up but after awhile with turning it off and firing it back up she seems to not want to crack up again. So I would have to repeat the procedure and it would just happen again.
