As some of you no. I bought a scabby 800 few months ago with a odd 750 front end on a 800 frame. After spending some time getting the yokes straight and sorting the front brakes. I decided to give her a full service. When I removed the oil filter I noticed cracks in the casing behind the filter. Has anyone else had a similar issue

Nothing to worry about. Its just from the casting I believe. Its been the same on my bikes and also on some spare engine covers I have had.
