I have a 97 XR600R, the sub frame running from the swingarm up to the rear portion of the seat support has
a crack (chain side) running 3/4 of the way around it. The previous owner had passenger foot peg brackets welded on
and the crack starts at one of the welds. Does anybody have experience or suggestions on the best way to
repair this problem? Would re-welding it work? A replacement frame is not in the works at this time.
Thats a steel sub frame. But there pretty thin. I'd gind it down and have it heliarced. And use kyron's idea and weld another light piece of sheet metal around the weld. Then just use some touch up paint when your done.
