I believe you are correct
i.e. there is no pressurized oil feed.... the only oil that would enter is oil that that does so more-or-less by accident, based on spray, general oil level in the side cover or etc....

There is a Buell derivative design of this engine that does apparently spray oil into the stator area from the main crankshaft journal ... but we are not that lucky..............
