my rearset brok a mounting tab off my frame!!!!

ok, well im in the process of fixing my 600rr. come to find out when i pull the right rearset off the bike, off comes the top mounting tab on the frame
wow, another lovely problem.
i have the complete piece that split, it just needs to be welded back together, doesn't need to be purrrty, just very functional!
i live around the spring area, closest place to me would be best!
any recommendations??

Thanks,
J

were is lonestar metal works, i think patricks guy it off pinemount, thats a litte far, as a last resort ill head that way, however id rather see if i can this done a little closer.
its not a big task, if my frame was cracked id be more choosy, however this is my trackbike and its function over style.
as long as that piece is welded on there good and secure ill be happy

i will also check a radiator shop, i do beleive they weld aluminum.

Thanks

I think the weld on the radiator is the stronges part on the whole thing now. 40bucks and they layed it on realy thick. I almost thought they put jb weld on then painted over it.

What type of aluminium did it break off of?

If its that crystaline stuff that shatters when it comes apart it may be a problem(the unshiney aluminium on the frame..)

its rough, not a perfectly clean break, however, the piece fits back in there when i stick it in.
i would imagine its the same kinda of material on the frame as the fairing stay mounts.
this sucks, i hope i can get it done by the first so i can make it to MSRH..

These rearset tabs and subframe tabs are a very common breaking point. A place that does head work on cars can typically weld aluminum too. I had a machine shop nearby weld my engine casings when the rear sporcket bolts decided to sheer off and send my chain into my water pump. Since they weld heads when they blow a head gasket, they should do a real good job on stuff like this.
