Default missing/broken engine piece???

Hello all. Just got my 2009 victory jackpot last week and today i noticed a piece on the engine that looks like something is supposed to be bolted in there. Maybe just a bracket mount for something that is no longer needed with mods that it came with... stage 1 swept exhaust, ss air filter. please help as i have no clue what this could be.

Only took you a week to find it! It's a casting/boss for the old style oil cooler. Your engine is good. You have all necessary pieces. Good luck!!

I've seen a thread on this before, but can't remember all of the comments. Basically, it's ok -- it's supposed to be that way. My '12 Vegas has the same thing. Bright and shiny spot that looks like something should be attached, but I don't think anything really goes there.
