FRAME QUESTION

PI just dropped my bike In a parking lot not even at 5 mph and the bottom bolt hole on the frame that holds my left rearset broke off and was wondering is a 05 gsxr frame steal or aluminum or what?? It Looks like cast iorn from the inside.... Thoughts on how to fix it would be nice since I know jbweld isn't gonna last for ever

This is the bolt that holds your rearset?
It would be a mistake to use JBweld at all, if I understand correctly. The frame is aluminum and that needs to be welded.
You don't wanna be motoring down the road and have your peg fall off, no doubt, at the worst possible moment.

I just went and looked at my 04' 750. The reason it looks like cast iron is that it's cast aluminum.
That means whoever you get to weld it needs to know what they are doing as cast Al can be tricky, even for experienced welders.

I don't think it will be welded that easy cuz it split the bottom bolt hole in half so it might mess the treads up of welded. And I put jb weld just for the time being since it's one of two bolts. And I heard it's next to impossible to weld cast aluminum on a dime size piece and still have the threads intacked

The same thing happend to my '02 750 when a buddy wrecked it. I had Metric Cycles build up a new mount for me. It has survived 14k miles of riding.
