Noticed something unusual last night and I wanted to see if anyone would help me confirm what this is. Below are some pics, I looked in my manual and it seems to be the starter case but I really am not to sure what kind of problem this is. I assume I can just put some silicone over it to help defend against moisture but any other opinions is much appreciated. please let me know if I can do anything else to make it a little more clear. Thanks for any help you can give me -
go to a machine shop. they have a dye that will help clearafy where the crack starts & ends. normally in equipement that vibtates a-lot , machinets stop-drill the crack to prevent it from going any further.
schmitty is right on target ? loose starter bolts will crack the housing alot of torque to crank over a motor trust me i learned the hard way and an 86 fxr bottom bolt fell out for the starter mount on the tranny and cracked in the same spot as yours
Really...... Well I took it in and they acted like it was routine. My bike is still under warranty. Would u take it in and fix it? I was planning on it just later down the road. Still have 1.5 years left on it
