Potential problem...

My bike is still under warranty and I have just noticed this crack. Can anyone with mechanical knowledge please advice me to the potential problem of this crack?

Looks like the casting is cracked - will leak exhaust gas if it breaks away.
New cylinder head or aluminium welding( which would be difficult ) to make a permanent repair

Wow, bummer. It looks like it is leaking already. Not worth trying to weld in my opinion.

I have seen a couple of very similar cracks, both were on crashed bikes.

Front headers get impacted and flex enough to crack that portion.

Has the bike been crashed?

Ditto!
That motor has been crashed whether the rest of the bike has or not.

Yes, I bought it from a Harley Davidson dealer and purchased an extended warranty.

Not as far as I know, bought it in December. Bike seems to be in good condition besides this problem.

Well, it looks like they should be putting a cylinder head on it for you then.

Header pipe is really rusty and it looks like you have sand all over everything!?

I hope the extended service plan works out. Too many of those look for a way to deny coverage, and I agree that this could be a crack from crash damage. Which would not be covered under the extended service plan.

Well I am about to find out - the warranty people are sending out an assessor to look at the damage. Hopefully find out next week sometime.

Good news - An assessor had to come out to inspect the damage, however he accepted that the repair could be covered by the warranty. Relieved.

Wow, that wasn't a very good start to SV ownership!
