Yes it is a problem. Twins should have a good oil return flow. Have you just bought the bike? Have you been working on it or made any changes? Have the oil pipes been reversed? Oil pumps reversed? If no changes have been made, there could be blockage on the return line, in the crankcase pick-up, or the passage frome here to the return pump, in the pump itself or the pipe back to the tank.
