I found a crack in my frame just under the steering head weld on my 2003 YZ450. Oil is oozing out of the crack otherwise I might not have noticed it. Has anyone had a similar problem and can it be welded reliably ? Will a re-weld hold up under big air jumping. I hate the idea of spend $850 to buy a new frame.
