There are some pics floatin' around the net of ONE 10R that has a frame crack. No history or information is available on how or why the frame cracked. I have yet to see any pics other than the one black 10R that keeps hitting the boards. I'm not worried about my frame crackin' at all... :wink:
Dude what are you guys talking about the frames crack all the time. I take mine in at least once a week for a new frame. usualy there is a line of 30 other 10r's with cracked frames with mine. Sheesh I thouth everyone knew how every kawi has at least one crack in the frame, thats why they are so fast. Dont you people no anything.
There have been a few stories, but as said they were mostly tracked down to rider abuse, slammed wheelies etc. Kawasaki still replaced the frame but warned the owner it would be a 1 time ordeal for him. That is what I was told came of the most talked about story. The swingarm is what I was told is weak in an accident, but lets be honest, none of us 'plan' to wreck even on the track we dont plan on wrecking.
No your not right trying to lead this young man off track, and tell him we all ride bikes that have decent frames, my god what are you thinking MAN! I mean imagine a manufacter selling us bikes with good frames, thats unheard of. At least 75% of Kawis always crack while your doing wheelies or at speeds above 220
