Hi Bob, My name is Allan and I have had some experience with KLR engines..... So, not sure if I am reading this correctly, but, the flywheel/alternator/stator or whatever one want to call it runs in an oil bath of sorts (being the sump), the same oil sump that the crank, gears, timing and balancer chains run in, much like the clutch does on the other side of the engine.
Question is ..... how was the presence of oil discovered (which is supposed to be there, even on a two stroke...just that on a two stroke the crank is sealed from the oil sump and is lubricated by the oil mixed into the fuel), perhaps the sump was overfilled and it poured out of the inspection port when it was removed?????? More info please. Regards, Allan
