1981 KZ550A2. Hey guys. In my overhaul of this engine I was surprised that the space under the breather cover atop the gearbox was just empty. As in the attached photo. I was expecting some kind of filter or mesh that would coalesce oil mist so that the liquid oil would drain back into the crankcase. Babbits parts diagram shows nothing in that space either. There is a small hole at about 7 o'clock for drainage and I guess vapors. Is this the ways it really is supposed to be? Thanks.
