Quality aluminum welding is an art, and like previosuly stated it would probably be easier and cheaper to replace the entire rearset, plus you dont want you weld giving out and having the part fly into your chain, or have your foot come off and snap you ankle or make you crash. I'm not gonna lie I have rode with critical peices zip-tied on, but thats just how I roll.

PARTS

talk to karthick, i think he is offering his bike (parts) to whoever needs them.

i am not sure if he bought the bike back from his insurance yet, you can talk to trooper to see if he knows anything about it...i think he has 06 r6, with stock rearset, if i remember correctly, both of rearset were not damaged at all

could afford but would be unwilling to have a bike (got two) if i didn't at least do some of the work. the only time i take it to a shop if it is something for which i dont have people to source for information or too busy.

Your "garage" needs some overload leafs to help support the weight of all of those tools.

I like to work on my bike whenever possible. Not very good at diagnosing or doing any serious engine work but can usually tackle anything else. Sometimes I just don't have the time and I like to do it to save money so if it requires special tools that are expensive I take it to a shop unless the tools are something I think I will use a few times. This week I will be replacing the fork seals on my bike. Never done this but it seems easy enough.

I've got a 85 Monte Carlo SS with an ongoing LT4/T56 swap

Good to see there are still some folks out there like us..

if you dont have the time to work on it.. then taking it to a shop will be the BEST thing for you..
I agree with many posting on here. It is a joy to work on your own ride. But these days i habeas so many things that I enjoy that sometimes things like working on a bike has to be delegated to a shop to free up time for the other pleasures in life.

I completed the front end suspension but have not gotten around to building the rear 4 link. The rear just needs new lift coils and shocks.

Back to topic, our truck groups usually do mod days where everyone gets together at someone's place and helps out with mods or repairs. Drinks, food, and good times.
