Cheers you guys,,,
Thanks too sbeau1960 for that detailed set of pix. I honestly didn't think they would run an alternator in oil, mainly because it might tend to rob a bit of hp by having to turn in oil whereas in air there is no physical resistance.
I will consider my options... 1. Forget it altogether.. 2. Get a gasket and attempt it.. 3. Touch it up by dabbing it by hand and matt black(ish) paint.. 4. Masking tape, newspaper and spray it while still on the bike...
Actually when I first saw it over the weekend, I nearly died of fright when I saw all that paint chipped away, but I looked at it again lastnight and it didn't seem "that" bad afterall.
