GSXR1000 05/06 recall - broken frames

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Johnny O, Jan 17, 2009.

  1. lol epoxy and bolts to brace the frame.
    i thought i seen some doggie repairs
  2. Epoxy hold the entire Lotus Elise aluminium chassis together. Works just fine. It's not dodgey at all.
  3. Yes, but it was DESIGNED that way :LOL:.
  4. Well, I don't imaging the chassis engineers at Suzuki threw this one to the work experience kid. If there's a problem then a competent fix is required, and I'm not suprised that they've gone the epoxy and brace route.
  5. And how many bikes were ever affected? I've heard about some radiator failures due to hard landings from monos, so I guess the frame stats might be interesting.

    Gotta love my old school tube steel frame (and a front end that's a heavy bugger to mono, even if I wanted to :LOL: )
