Frame crack?

Post  xabntroop on Sun Jun 24, 2012 5:06 am

I noticed a small verticle crack on the weld seam on the frame just under the seat on the part of the frame that runs verticle from the foot peg up. Looked small and doesn't seem to be in a critical spot but I'm still going to have it looked at. Thats a crappy description I know, I'll post pics tomorrow when I take her apart to inspect. Aside from that, it was a first run on a new Maxxis Desert IT, about two hours and I was not riding hard at all, just scouting for the upcoming deer season. The knobs are still sharp and the edges show minimal wear, dry terrain with plenty of deep ruts and jagged rocks. I was very pleased with the tire today. Just in case anyone has been on ebay looking for an XR650R....there is one on there for 12k USD!!!! I thought it was nuts, zero miles, no engine work or pumper carb....check it out. It's on ebay for sale in the states.

Frame crack

Hey, sorry to hear about your frame, seems like a rare problem? Hope its not what it appears like.

Checked out that $12K XRR on ebay....its a beautiful bike, but the guy is living on another planet thinking he could get even close to that. And stock suspension too? Motorcycles are a money pit, that's just a fact of life.....

Well, it's not a crack, it appears to a raised seam that looked very much like a short little crack. I took the seat off today and looked really close, can't see too well without my peepers up close, ver relieved indeed.
