When I removed the left side cover I could see connecting rods...

There is a big circular hole under the left side cover(alternator side). I don't recall being able to look right at the connecting rods. does a freeze plug type thing go in that hole- it's perfectly circular, so maybe I had something fall out when I dropped the bike on that side. I also seem to get a lot more oil out when I pulled that cover... Thanks to you folks who answer problem questions-it's a nice thing to help people out.

A pic would help, but my preliminary answer is it sounds normal. I'm pretty sure I can see a rod through my 99 where that round hole is.

Mine has the round hole where yours does, but mine is larger and is milled. I would post a photo but I never have and don't know how! Mine is an '01 929. Why would they cut the hole...?

Take a picture, sign up for Photobucket (free with an email address), upload the pic from your computer (or your phone with the PB app), copy the IMG link and paste it in your post.

My guess is yours is machined a bit just from better machining available in 01 than in 99, or they cast the cases in a different way.
