Pardon my using K5Dragracer's pic, but it gives a better view with the wheel extended from the swingarm.

That area I circled in red, feeling it with my finger I notice what feels like little cracks or raised ridges in there. I don't imagine that they are actually cracks though, is that like some slag left from the casting process of the hub? Anyone else notice this?


Thanks

OK good.............I'm still not sold on the frame business either.

Otherwise you know Mladin, Yates and especially Spies would've broken a ton by now.

I was going to ask this question myself, glad you brought it up
Yes I noticed the little ridges and what look like small, hairline cracks on the sprocket carrier/hub. Hope it's normal....

come on guys....

Why does everyone expect sportbikes to look like a space shuttle engine?

Everyone needs to relax and step away from the keyboard for a bit and go ride.
