07 YZ450 cracked frame

5 posts in this topic

Don't know if yami will help, but we have had my son's frame welded at a local weld supply shop. Just need an experienced aluminum welder.

I can almost assure that Yamaha won't help with that unless it was bought new less than 30 days ago. But it absolutely can be welded, and if welded by a competent individual, it will be plenty strong.

Wasn't there another few cases of the '06 and 07' frames developing cracks? Better keep and eye on mine I guess.. maybe do some magnaflux dye checking :busted:

I remember seeing reports only from owners of '07's, and I've never heard of one breaking or bending as a result of the crack.
