Sup guys was changing my oil for the first time on my new bike has about 15 hours on it. As doing so I noticed these cracks and "non-factory" looking hole in the oil filter compartment. Ive been told that its just casting edge cracks and its normal. And some have said hell no that doesn't look good lol Need some advice please thanks guys

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

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 agree with DEZPERADO
Looks like casting flash to me, too.

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