Today working on my newly acquired V11 greenie, hoping to finish off doing the fluid replacements, I found the dreaded gearbox crack
It is like all others I have read about around the upper mounting bracket on the Lh side, going from the bracket to the flat surface.
I have mixed feelings at this time. The bike has 87000Km and is in good condition.
1. pump into the bike more time and money (new gearbox housing) or get the housing welded (outcome unsure)
So here are a few images that may help. It is very hard to get images of it in situ.

MySport looking down from the left side (tank, airbox, starter, all removed), barely visible beyond the injector:
From the left through the "throttle rod tunnel":
The mounting tab, on the early RedFrame only, seen midway on this frame turned bottom side up:
One more from the left (tank and airbox removed)
