are you sure that is a crack ?  Does not look like one to me....  :excuseme:

Maybe the picture doesn't show depth as much as in person. Does anyone else's bike have a casting seam in that same spot?

I am at work and have parent teacher crap tonight but .... I will try to look later as I am very curious about this. 

Mine has it, looks normal to me,  to clean to be a crack..... :ride:

Take a picture of yours and post it up, I'm curious..

Sorry, my ribs are to busted to move my bike out into the light to take a picture....It does look just like yours though, I'm sure everybody will look at there's and tell you the same thing. :thumbsup:

Phew.. I was also worried because I just took my bike upstate for a weekend of riding and on the way back I drove through an extremely rough patch of highway and the bike leaned over, putting a lot of weight on that side of the case.

Mine has it also must be a casting in the mold--sorry my camera took a swim a month back but i think your alright as two of us have the same think--mine looks just like yours BTW :thumbsup:

Think that's where you went wrong :p

I had to brush the dust from my mark but it looks the same as your clean one-- :p I never noticed it before tho!! Guess cause i don't wash it??? :rolleyes:

Looks like a parting line from the casting mold

I have never washed mine yet but it will get a good bath before I take it in for the 305 install ....  :thumbsup:

Does the owners manual say anything bout washing them?? Mine is still under the seat somewhere--I did scrape some cow mines off once :p 

Laugh if you want...I don't care,  :rolleyes: But I won't let my "dirt" bike get dirty...It's kind of my hot rod... :ride:

I have only been in a "little" mud once other than that its all been dry dirt. 

Definitely a feature of the casting:
