    You mean,Motiorcycle? Its either pressurised oil system (dry or wet sump, recycling or total loss) or  oil is mixed with the oil and goes out exhaust (some 2-strokes)

    .In a 4 stroke, oil is pumped from bottom of sump or from oil bag , thru the galleries, bearings, etc,and back to sump or sucked up to the bag. A filter is usually before the pressure pump. Old bikes, like a '26 JD,  just let the oil out onto the ground.Needed a hand pump to prime it, too, while riding...the Good,. old days...

    @CB: Fork, chain oil etc is not a lube "system". A system has circulation, No motorcycle I am aware of uses anything but oil in gears or final drive. Maybe some pre WW I model that also had splash-fed engine, too.

    Motor oil, hydraulic fork oil, gear oil for the chain, heavy gear grease (model dependent) 

    Edit Anon is an idiot - heavy gear lube in the splines of shaft drive motorcycles along with gear oil. Front fork oil is certainly a lubricant and coolant amongst other functions....maybe that is why anon is ANONYMOUS - clueless
