It didn't snap at the tripples.. not this one. This one snapped on the side. You can see it on the second pic.

When they first came out with this design they were snappin at the neck... not here... I wouldn't buy a gsxr before all of this and definately wouldn't now.

Well, this isn't good. I have been thinking about buying a newer gixxer, and from what I read in that thread, it's fairly common.

Please. There's nothing wrong with the frames. You run your $#!T into something and tell me how well the frame holds up.

Ahhhh, so now I see why all the Suzuki dealers have 2005's they want to show me when I ask about 03-04's.
Anyone heard about anything like this previous to 05-06?

looks bad, suzuki needs to step up and do some PR damage repair as well as compensate the affect families.

You are the tits my man! Couldn't have said it better myself. You eat **** at 75 mphs it doesn't matter what you are riding, it is going to be a big broken pile of **** when it stops going end over end.

In a lot of those pics the frame is clearly sheered at the weld point. I see lawsuits coming soon.....
