Hi! I had a very small crack on the left side of engine, between the clutch push rod and the front sprocket. Changed all the seals and it still leaked oil until I finally saw the leaking crack, it was so small that I had to use a magnifying glass to see it. Cleaned it and put a little bit of jb weld there and its been fine for 2000km.

You don't mention whether the suspected 'crack' is leaking or not. If not (and I suspect this is the case) then ignore it and ride. Remember the lower case is split vertically so there will be a line where the halves meet. This might have been painted over at the factory and the paint itself has cracked, but if nothing is coming out then it's really nothing to worry about.

I have a similar but maybe less distinct line there on mine......i would say it's a casting irregularity..... Mine has done just on 313000kms.....and is not cracked.....
