No risk of any oil spilling out - even with the bike on its sidestand.

To paraphrase the old adage: there's no such thing as noob questions, only noob answers! There's *nothing* under the cam cover that *shouldn't* be lubricated. If you're gonna take the cam cover off, do so (and lube the head) *before* you attempt to turn the engine over manually for a belt AND braces approach to security and peace of mind.

In any case I won't be manually turning over the engine until i've put some fresh oil in there and at least oiled the cylinder bores.

If you are going to remove the cam cover be aware that the gasket may or may not be able to be reused and that the 4 sealing washers under the cam cover bolts will most likely need replacing as they normally get crushed down when reinstalling the cover. When you get the cover off be careful as there are open slots leading down into the bowels of the motor that things could be dropped into.

This might be helpful....start at the beginning of the video.
