Ok I have read alot on here about the GSXR frame problem. My question is what year bikes does this effect? Or is it all GSXR frames? Mine is an 2004, should I be worried?

Thanks guys!

Thanks guys!
I've only been reading about the 06 GSXR-1000 and just saw one split in half the first lap out with Ridesmart on (23) at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I think the guys name was Bill. The split always seems to be right dead center between the weld seam and front neck. At least the 07 Frame looks like they made the corrections. We won't know until next year if that's true.

My buddy has thrown his 04 GSXR 1000 down twice on the street, think it pretty much slid both times, just plastic and flesh rash.

Seems like the ones cracking are doing some fairly violent tumbles.
