Crack or Casting Mark?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,  I just got a 2017 XR650L two weeks ago.  I went to do the first oil change, and I noticed this.  Not sure if it's a crack or just a casting mark.  Anyone else see this on their bikes?  It's right over the upper left bolt over the oil filter cover.

Thanks!

Its a casting mark, nothing to worry about, but if you havent yet buy a skid plate I just cracked the case on my 2017 dr650 I thought 140 was expensive not any more.....

The whole side of the case was pushed up about an inch but in the dr's defense I got about 12 feet of air time and than landed on a rock so its not poor quality its abuse lol thank god for full coverage insurance
