Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Common failure point on the bike, though it usually only cracks when someone attempts to remove the seized on bolt that runs though the casing

Thought that was the case, not too concerned though.

That's not a crack, it's a lubrication point Wink It will help if you chuck some plusgas (or other penetrating oil in there) before trying to undo your engine bolt... but if I were you'd I'd just leave it alone.

If you were really 'orrible then you could clean it up and stuff some of that 'metal epoxy putty' in there and paint over it... it won't do any structural good but it might look better...
