Nope, its oil filled. Better to drain the oil first to make less of a mess.

Damned thing started leaking on me before I got the oil pan under it...

I was rather glad I drained all the oil first... and as a side note: make sure you get a new gasket.

Re: 929rr Leaking oil ????

I asked two of my friends to help me. We leaned the bike over so the oil got to the other side and they held it in a 45 degree angle while i changed the cover. It works on both sides.
