when did i say that. I'm saying wha'ts a extra 50 lbs. on a street bike to make it a litte more crash friendly. heck if frames keep snapping the insurance agencie might start wanting some standards.

The '04 and up frames are not as stout as the earlier model. , even the '00 and up had issues if you stunted them hard, lost count of how many I welded up.
Long story short, the frame is plenty strong for even track use, but does not take front end impacts well. The new extrusion cast technology makes for extremely strong but unfortunately brittle frames.

Bikes are designed with two wheels on the ground. If one of it goes off, no complaints please. You made your choice picking out the best, now enjoy it. If you haven't had the problems, better sell it and get you another bike. All bikes are the same, each have its own problems never know until you owned it.

Amen! I've seen multiple cracked Suzuki and Yamaha frames. I have yet to see a cracked Kawi or Honda frame.

honda vs. suzuki.

ok, i have to throw in my $0.02. considering i work for a honda/suzuki dealership behind the parts counter this should count for something, its not a major deal imo, but still its funny...i mentioned this to my parts manager today. keep in mind ive been there about 6 weeks.

i would say on average twice a day i have customers coming in to replace various fairing screws on their gsxr's. i get these for customers so much that i know right where to find them, pretty much all suzuki's little fairing type of screws have a part number 09139-XXXX, and for some reason gsxr owners are always losing them. that and those little tiny plastic push-tabs that hold the tail section and various other bits in place. i cant remember their part number but it ends in -5PK, and i know right where to find them...

...


...


...i couldnt tell you where to find honda screws at...:laughing6

hmmm...what does that tell you!

aside from being annoying and potentially dangerous, these little buggers can cost like $3 a peice!

honestly i havnt had this problem with my gsxr, but it seems more common with the 01 and up, especially more with the 04 and up.

I have seen Kawasaki frames cracked too. My best friend had one. It cracked right at the neck to spar weld. It was never crashed and never stunted or wheelied, he couldn't wheelie if he tried. The only frame I hadn't seen cracked was a Honda. Honda makes some tough stuff. Too bad I went through 2 of their motors though on my 900rr. But it isn't saying much either considering how hard I rode them.

I own a 2005 636 Kawi and my bike survived 9 cartwheels back on the 1st of july this year and the frame held together fine, Had to replace everything else but no damage to frame what so ever accept for 1 dime size ding in it. As you can see in my avatar it used to be red now its all black after the rebuild.

I am the Bill dude with the cracked frame. I am really at a lost on what to do about getting another bike now.

Ty's frame really broke causing him to crash? Dang, that is freak'n me out. Is he positive that is what happened?

How does the Honda wheelie in second gear btw? Just throttle it and it is up or do you clutch er to get er to come all the way up?

I'm interested in what Kawi frame broke as well.
In my experience, at least in the last 2 seasons with the 636's, we've cart wheeled multiple 636 racebikes and never so much as cracked a frame.
