very normal, the engine breather goes into the top front of the air box, so oil vapour from the engine is burned with air from the air box, not all of it gets taken into the engine, thats what is still in the air box :)

Top tip, clean the little catch tube at the bottom of the air box once a while and not so much oil will accumulate in the air box. Also be sure to not overfill your engine oil as overfilled oil will exacerbate the issue.
