Strom Tipover: oil in top end?

I had my WeeStrom down for fork maintenance last Sunday, and it slipped off the jack and took a nap on the right side. I didn't discover it for at least four hours as I was away in the afternoon. My question is: if it spent about 4 hrs laying on its side, would there be oil in the cylinders (i.e. I'll have to do someething about that, before starting it up to avoid hydrolock/bent valvetrain) ? How would I be able to tell? I don't want to try starting it until I know it's ok to do so.

Thanks in advance...
