Default Scrape on motor

So earlier I was leaving a friends apartment and scraped a speed bump ( I was told by another member not to worry about it, and I'm sorry for asking again.) and am concerned with the scrape. Should I worry about this? Thanks in advanced for all feedback.

My Jackpot is very low from factory, and i scraped many times, the speedbumps are just too high here .... So i scraped the bottom many times

I would like to make a bottom engine cover out of stainless steel round bar ....
1 in the center & 2 half way the block .... But i never got arround to it

So if it does not leak then just do not worry

I always stand-up with my feet on the ground at really high speed bumps .... Thats how high they can be here

Yeah I double checked it and it seem to not be leaking anything. My brother put a good point out that there would not be oil going where that bolt is.

You don't say what bike you have, so I can only assume it's a Cross bike. If it is, I have a Tiger Tank hurky skid plate for sale cheap. You don't even tell us where you are, so I can't say if I'd deliver it or not.

Dunno if that skid plate fits your HB, since it came off a XC.

You should measure the SAG on your rear shock also ...

It is easy to do

Now put it in your memory bank and go slow over speed bumps.

I feel like an idiot I have been riding for 7 years now and for some reason I seem to be doing dumb stuff on this bilke. Tonight leaving work speed bump I was like ah not this time and didn't clear it all the way and caught the side of it and it kinda pushed me over to the right. The tires were find I just don't know why all of the sudden I am having issues.

No. Just go over them at minimum speed, like 2 MPH.
