At least its not metal fileings! Looks like some kind of clear coat came off, I would just clean it out as good as possible and hope for the best. Worst thing I could forsee is some of
that shit clogging an oil passage, which could cause a catastrophic engine failure, and perhaps death.

Oh man that's a relief. I was so sure it might be the cause of my engine issues. Guess I gotta keep digging

looks to be the varnish that the stator coil is probably dipped in.

Are you getting a lot flaking off?

yup it's just the epoxy coating used to seal the shit from the elements to prevent oxidation, I wouldn't worry about it unless your stator output drops below what it should on a meter, sometimes it increases the output :p which isn't a bad thing although too much charging juice can boil a battery.
