Hello experts,
I wonder if anyone would be good enough to comment?
I've almost finished the engine swap on my 2001 Tiger 955i (original engine still pulling strong, but at 131,000 miles it was using oil like a 2-Stroke!), and I noticed these frame cuts - little pieces seemingly chopped out of the frame.
I'm assuming these are not 'factory chops', left open like they are - I'm rather confused.

TIA for any help...

I really never noticed it before, but mine is the same.
No need to fret it.

Thanks for the reply Dude.
It does look like an ideal place for water and grime to get in and pool at the bottom inside of the frame - I might seal the holes up with silicone...
