uhmmmm add oil! it's a "dry sump" but it doesn't work without oil.. I'm joking of course! :P

Still, it's very strange that it's not pumping oil...
Did you make any engine repairs lately?

Dont bother lookin underneath the bike, that filter is inside engine cases !!!

And as Barcardi23 says "very strange" so ensure you understand the procedure for checking oil level (via oil tank) in your dry sump xt.

Check the blanking plug in the right hand Side of gearbox output shaft has not fallen out?..if your running it with bleed screw undone on oilfilter housing shove a pipe in hole and stick it in top of oil tank saves making a shit mess everywhere.
