Sucks! Known issue tho. Was yours checked and passed by the dealer? Your bike looks pretty heavily modified so it's likely the motor has been removed at least once? Gotta follow the install procedure to the letter and use the new torque specs published in the recall notice for sure. If all that was done I'd like to know.. pretty sure Kawasaki will have to replace that frame still unless the frame is a salvage or already considered replaced/discarded. If that is the case, then call Ron at Frame Straight Systems. Pretty sure that can still be fixed.

I have seen that happen a few times. 06 and 07 had recalls for this. Also when the motor is put into the frame and the spacer is adjusted to tight it will cause this issue.

First off I know this is old prob
I've had my motor out dozen times and yes I know how to install
It's a 06? I've had since new and it has around 1800 miles on her
And yes I might have a few mods maybe I little more hp than stock
I'd just thought I'd post a pic thought it remind people to chek and yes it was insp back in 08 during the so called recall
And doubt Kawasaki will do shit on a old recall
My new rebuild will just be off the wall :thumbs:
It's from the shock binding btw :ugeek: :ugeek:

well that's not good, hope you weren't into it when that happened.

Maybe you can pick up a salvage for a reasonable amount.
Good luck with the new build. almost finished mine

You only confirmed what I already assumed. You just didn't provide any context in your initial post, so we had to take it from the top. Clearly you are way past the "that's news to me" stage and I'd wager it was not a real shocker when it busted.. just a huge "ah... fuck!". I am less than thrilled that yours has busted even after all the care has been taken to follow the rechecks and proper engine install procedure. If it was mine I'd send it to Frame Straight and have it fixed and reinforced with some gussets. It's the same amount of work as swapping in a salvage frame, keeps your VIN and title in tact, plus gets you a stronger frame.

I run the same shock as you.. the JRI.. what was binding exactly? Man.. I hope I don't get to find out. I used to inspect my frame all the time ever since that cracking was reported... been a few months since I looked last... I need to have a real close look at it when I get it out of storage next spring for sure.

Anyway, sorry for your trouble. Keep us posted on what you decide and do.
