Question Oil mystery

The 1991 VS1499GLP I am preparing has a problem and I am puzzled. I removed the oil filter and a little bit of dirty oil came out, less than a pint. The bike was sitting on a support to make it level and the front wheel was really high. I pulled the drain plug and nothing came out. I was going to install the battery anyhow so I jacked up the rear and put the old battery under the rear wheel, which made it level. STILL NO OIL came out. Here is the mystery---The oil on the dipstick is clean and appears full to the normal mark. ????
I have a raft bellows air pump. Tomorrow I will put a rubber stopper on the nozzle and put pressure on the dipstick hole and see what happens, and maybe on the drain hole. Ideas, guys?

Default Wheee !

WHEEEi I found a man that used to sell and service Suzukis. He is the checkout man at Peters ACE Hardware in Dewey OK. He told me the earlier ones (my 1991) have a drain plug at the rear of the tranny.
I pulled it and almost a gallon of pretty oil came out. The front plug I was told was the drain is just an attaching port to measure oil pressure. I refilled with 10W30 full synthetic. After a miserable time trying to attach the battery leads, I brought the battery home and secured the post nuts with Shoe Goo. The replacement clutch switch didn't have the lead attached, but I discovered the old one had the right-angle female spades I needed after I disassembled the carcass.
