Max  do you have a C14?  if so, look closely at the gear housing...
I've seen this a dozen times

if not, this isn't a subject for your response.

read the post above.

I have absolutely no idea what you are trying to say.

I bought the bike new (as a leftover in 2014) and the bubbling has been there as long as I remember.  It now has about 30K and the bubbling was there.... I think.... since new, but definitely when I did the valves at 15K.  It does seem to be getting worse however.

Thanks Walter for returning and giving us more info. When a bike sits around a dealer that long, who knows what could happen to it. Perhaps during the dealer prep (which is low priority and could have taken days because it would have stopped and started as other work came in the door) maybe some brake fluid got splashed on the paint and it was quickly cleaned from every where except the bevel gear housing?
