Please, feel really stupid...why is there crank oil under my rotor cover? Is it suposed to be there? I am installing the 10 oz rotor on the YX400 F and oil dripped out like it was a sump! Is there a seal that has failed or is it suposed to be there? Bike runs great, no problems...
Either I don't understand the 4 stroke or something is terribly wrong... Help would be appreciated...

It is the sump. The left main bearing and balancer shaft bearing live there.
