"06"-"07" GSXR 600 & 750 Frames Snappin and crackin?

I've read that suzuki gsxrs 600 & 750's are having problems with frames breaking at welds typically at the steering head and under the gas tanks. I have an 07 gsxr750. Although I do not wheelie, I ride the freeways and do some canyon carving. Is this something I should be concerned about the next time I get on my bike?? Some are even saying that this is a manufacturers defect which suzuki is aware of. Any reputable feedback on this issue will be appreciated!

its the first I've heard about it being an issue on the 06/07's I know it was an issue with another year of GSXR, but cant recall. pretty sure it was fixed somehow.

I heard it was on the 04-05's, But If you don't wheelie and slam the front end, I don't see why it's tomuch of an issue, if they find it was that big of a deal, Im sure some one over at suzuki would send a recall.

My bike slid in to a wall going around 60-70mph front wheel first, And It hasnt broke or bent, So it's possibly just random bikes.

I've never heard about this before, but on the same topic - I have two friends with 2006 zx6 and 2006 zzr600 who had their frames cracked and replaced by dealer. Not to pick on Kawis but it is a fact.

Your right and they had a recall on the 10R as well it was doing the same thing from guys wheeling them to much. But I think you should be ok as long as your riding it like it was meant to. Its putting the bike into stresses the eng. wernt planning for that screws them up.

I heard about the '05 1000 but the 06/07 600/750 is news to me.

But if this is true that means that none of the Suzuki Super Sports are safe... I wouldnt want to take a bike down the road knowing that the company that produced it has a huge problem with making quality frames and the fact that it could break would scare the crap out of me.
