Wow. I'll have to look at mine when I leave work. That doesn't strike me as normal; I doubt it's an alignment mark, I would expect several alignment marks. I wish the photo was larger so I could zoom in and see more detail.

@Weeds I knew you were alright from the moment I saw that pic. That said, I remember a few years ago there was a member here that had a swingarm failure, where it split through right in front of the adjustment slot

Now go have a Mind-Eraser 1 part Kahlua, 1 part Absolute, 2 parts seltzer
