Ok, does everyone's SV look like mine does in these photos? Last time I was changing the oil (the other day) I was looking at this part of my engine and asking myself "Is this supposed to look like this?" I think it has been this way for some time (maybe from the get go) as I recall snagging sponges and such when washing the bike up but is this normal. Seems odd that this side has these sort of scratched up marks on and I though that maybe it has been rocks or debris hitting it up there, but the other side has none of these (see last image below). Also these are really rough and very strong, like it came out of a die this way. I don't think these engine cases are painted (are they?). So short story long.. here are the pics:

I've never seen one that bad. It's a poor casting finishing that's all, nothing to worry about.
