Thanks for the replies to my first TT post!
I'd like to say I did some huge jumps on my XR650L and that's how I broke it but in truth I've probably never been more than 2 feet in the air.
I did complete the LA-Barstow-Vegas Rally on it and rode portions of the Baja 1000 course but at a much slower pace than most.
I think it had a hairline crack when I bought it last year and it proceeded to get worse.
I finally got a welder to come out and give me an estimate today.
$375 TIG welded here
$325 TIG welded here (if I prep it and grind the paint and rust off)
$200 TIG welded (if I can get it to his shop in Burbank)
A frame swap might make more sense but I can't find any other cracks and the thought of dealing with new DMV registration is unappealing.
The welder seemed fairly confident that it would hold and said he would add a gusset to reinforce it.
I’m thinking the $325 option, anybody have any thoughts on this operation?
I'll post pics of whatever the outcome is.
