Another YZ426F cracked tank

Of course my joy didn't end there. While standing under an EZ-Up in the shade, I turned and rammed my shin into a bike stand, resulting in a painful bruise. Luckily it missed a previous bruise by an inch. I got that one a couple of weeks ago when I hit my shin on my footpeg. I had gotten out of shape in a corner and nearly fell, but saved it. After I got the goose egg on my shin, I kinda wished I would have just fallen over in the turn.
I suspect that the leaking gas and fumes were being sucked through the air filter, causing a rich condition at low revs.
I'm hoping Yamaha will give me some warranty assistance with the tank and the hub that I blew up a while ago.

by the weekend. They refused the hub, but I really think they have a hub problem and should
warranty them also, along with all the damage they cause. I hope no one gets hurt from
exploding their hub while landing the big one.
