Outside Clutch Basket Scratches

Postby ico135 » 12:18 pm Oct 17 2017

I just pulled the clutch basket and there are a decent amount of scratches around the out side of the the clutch basket. Image attached below. Any ideas what could have caused this and is it a concern?

Nothing to worry about, just factory machining.
