yeah, mine is the same. 1993 900 SS. Engine paint peeling everywhere. I've read it's just how it is with them. The clear is peeling off pretty much everywhere on the crank case. The black paint on the clutch case and alternator cover, jugs and heads is cracked and peeling like a 60 year old house in South.i've never owned a bike that had paint peeling from it the way this has. Maybe the previous owner painted the side covers and jugs???
