Oh...ok, I have never seen it happen so I was just curious. But, I still don't know how a slider could break off and punch a hole in a cylinder wall.

it was a cutless frame slider; the bracket broke off and drove into the head.

Is that the type of frame slider that has a mount on it so you don't have to drill the plastics? That is what I have on the rt. side of the GSXR and it didn't punch the cylinder wall, but it did bend the bolt. On the contrary, I think it saved some additional rash to the plastics.

I was sorry to see your bike being pulled up in the crash truck. Glad you are doing semi-good. It could have been worse. That's what I keep telling myself anyhow. Good luck on the repairs. From the pics I can't see a crack, just a dent....maybe I'm missing it. Heal up soon dude.

Frame slider is good only if you drop the bike. As for the lowsided or highsided, frame slider does more damage then protecting it. I highsided my gixxer1K and the frame was fine at all places except where the frame slider took the hit and broke both side of the mounting area. That's where the two bolts holding the top front of the engine. Most wrecks are bad and bikes ending up being totalled. I guess you can track the bike out and forget about forest ride.

I got my list all together and have found many replacement parts. Including a new tail section for $100 a new bucket (enging problem) $250 and fairing stay for $100 clipon $85 so I just need some rearsets methinks woodcraft. And I'll be back in the forest beetches. The 1 will no longer goto the track. 6er FTMFW.

I will be deciding on whether or not I can just reweld the crack though. May be a quick fix.

I don't see a crack, just a dent...is that what you are referring to? It must be a hairline crack if so.

From what Irish said the backend slipped out a good 3ft, and then it finally caught grip. From there it was highside city and over the bars I flew. My rig then ran me over and landed on me crankside down. It flipped back over when I pushed it off me while rolling, thus the 2 sided rash.

Man, sorry to hear Joe... I can weld steel if that is what the stay is, but not setup for aluminum yet. I won't be home much the next couple months but I'll help if I can.


I'll even squeeze your pinky a bit to keep the old heart rate up...

Yeah, it sucks. I think I've got it pretty figures out though. My pinky is getting better, I can bend it some and even type with it slightly. All things considered, I was lucky.
