Clutch mystery

I recently pulled my clutch cover off due to hearing some grinding noise in it yesterday. There was almost no oil in the system. I just recently serviced my crf450 and know i put the correct amount in the resovoir. Could it possibly be a bad seal between the two resovoirs??? Thoughts on this. Thanks

i have tried to post links to searched threads.. won't go there when ya click the link. I even tried quoting your post Oakhillb and pasting the full link and still wont work. Might be better to state exactly what search parameter ya searched for..

OP.. there is a bunch of info on "oil migration", as that is likely what is happening if your not seeing a leak from the case or drain bolt. Farily simple fix with a seal.

Thanks, im pretty much sold on thats what it is. Can i replace the seal without splitting the cas?

.. search "oil migration".."oil transfer" .. yes.
