Question about greasing crankshaft bearing

I just got this 09 Summit X 800 recently and I had the primary clutch off to rebuild it. While it was off I thought it would be a good idea to check/regrease the crankshaft bearing on that side. I took off the cover and the seal and to my surprise there wasn't any grease in it. Just some runny oil like liquid dripped out. I don't know much about these sleds but I thought this had a 800 P Tek and those use Iso Flex grease. Does this mean it's not a P Tek or can the grease break down enough to turn into liquid?

Normal for a high milage low maintenance sled of that vintage. I'd just push in some Isoflex and run it, unless something looks pooched in that bearing.
