I was at a race last night and I broke a weld on the frame. It is just below the tank where the sub-frame mounts to the frame. A guy at the track told me that was the third one of those he had seen. Has anybody else had this happen? I checked the post and did not see any post.

Do a search for cracked frames there has been a problem with YZF frames cracking by the steering stem but I have never heard of them braking there. You can buy a used frame off of ebay for about the same cost of getting the frame fixed. Good luck Oh by the way I had to replace my 99 frame due to cracking at the steering stem. I am usning a 01 frame now.

The weld is pretty small. I will check e-bay. I had planned to simply have it welded.
