Yes, all is ok.

You are thinking 2-stroke. There is supposed to be oil in there.

Yeah I had the same problem. I had worked on a bunch of 2 strokes and then all of a sudden I tap into my 426 and it's full of oil. I got scared for a minute, but then I found out it's normal. There is no crank seal on 4 strokes like there is on 2 strokes.

Thanks I was sh**ing in my pants thought I was in real trouble. My xt has no oil on that side of the motor

Uh, isnt your OIL FILL hole in the Flywheel side of the crankcase?:busted:

XRs are the same way, BTW.

Nope, not on the 98-02 models. The fill hole is in the downtube of the frame in front of the gas tank. This system holds more oil and is a better system in my opinion for off road riders such as myself.
