Just checked mine and it too had some sort of round looking "stone" that looked all the world like a bead of water preparing to drop. I popped back into the swingarm with a small screwdriver...
I'm the third post here that found a "stone" in the small drain hole on the left side of the bike... or nearside for you guys who drive on the wrong side of the road.
Now I'm thinking that the "stone" is not a "stone" but something that comes from the factory (drop of dried paint?).
And... thanks for the head's up! I found no water but it's now on my periodic maintenance list of things to do...
I'm still wondering about the "stone" thing that several of us have found.
