I can't remember how mine looks exactly, but found this on Google

I would definitely not like that. If it looks funny there, who knows what other places could be messed up. It's an imperfect cast

I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up!

The holes are supposed to be there. I can't tell if those are cracks or flash. I would think that it is casting flash.

Looks like cracks in the casting to me. If that were my bike, it would be going to the dealer. I've never seen anything like that on any of my atv's.

Take it to the dealer. That can't be good.

I still believe the lines are casting flash, and the hole is supposed to be there. I'm so sure, I'll bet anyone $50 I'm right, and you're wrong. Who's in?? Prove me wrong and collect $50 in your paypal.

I still have my $50, nobody has proved me wrong. It's casting flash and causes no problems.
