I tried again this morning...and tried the driver's side first. This time there was very little oil visible. Again - I could see all the way down into the inside where the bolt goes. I used my allen key for starters to see if I could 'feel' the top of the filter. I felt nothing - and was able to put the key all the way down inside.

I put my finger on top of the banjo against the allen key to measure how far down the key went.

I was expecting to hit the top of the filter. Is it possible that my FXT never got these filters?
