Very little oil in airbox (is it ok?)

I know a lot of oil in the airbox is bad, but is just a little ok? I have over 7000 miles on bike and it smokes a little like some of the other on the board. Airfilter itself was oil free and DRY. So I think everything is ok, just double checking. There was very little in airbox, most places were completely dry. It mostly was just around the two screws at the bottom of the airfilter (pics will show).

It's normal for a new motor to have some oil from blow back. But if it gets excessive you may have a problem. Yours looks normal.
