You are correct sir! I knew there was a valve somewhere along the line though.
Either way, sometimes they let the oil seep out of the frame. If you are not aware of this it can be quite disconcerting.
It's only happend to me a couple times on my bike but on the XRL thread I remember reading of others bikes that do this on a more frequent basis.

I haven't studied these bolts that closely in person but the diagram Spudrider posted shows part of the stud with no threads, and the pic Bryce took looks like there is still enough stud to grip with vise grips.
Hopefully by now he's on the road again!
