It may no longer be in an issue but it certainly was at one time. And even then it may have only been .01% of the bikes made but....
gixxer 600s and 750s? if theyre going fast enough to snap the frame, then the condition of the bike is the least of their worries.

yammy had the same issue on the fz1's. normally IF they do crack, you will notice it before it breaks, but again, very few and far between

I am just ready for a new bike. I finally bought new Jeep in 2004 and love it. That and the wife is getting a newer 500 and I can not let her have a newer bike than me. I am just a azzhole like that.
I felt the same way. I could finally afford it, always wanted new, ect. ect. But after I dropped it, I felt like, , I could of had this bike for half the price. Plus, I really want to get on the track, and I know I would fell more comfortable out there with a bike I paid half the price for. Too late for me though. Just giving you my insight. No one could of talked me out of my purchase.

PS just give the wife the dinosaur
