I love the bike, and yes it came with that dent there for clearence like the others have mentioned. The black covers have not wore thru yet, but are scuffed already. The sound of this bike is killer. I think it is quieter than my 07 250f for sure. Trust me, i do feel lucky to finally be able to afford and race new bikes every year. I work for my dad who owns a dealership and i will be upgrading bikes every year. Thats why...lol... you are a lucky dude!
