Front drive gear case cap fell off

I've had an 85 vn700 setting around in my garage ignored for over 7 years. Cleaned the carbs, gas tank, etc. Well, It runs now, but when I first started it up the front gear cap fell off the bike and oil came out. Is this gear oil? Also, the case cap seems to come off too easily as I can pull it off with my fingers.

Clean with Acetone or Laquer thinner then apply black RTV silicone sealant and reinstall. Let it cure overnight.

Oil, not gear lube.
