Frame Modifications

  • Could not recommend the mod for undamaged frames
  • The supporting frame jig is still in place & may be required for some time yet. Cosmetically ugly.
  • The area where the damage has been repaired is missing supporting cabling (noticeable dent in the bodywork), but appears to be becoming work hardened.
  • The frame has good straight line stability, but no good if thrown into bends. (Think a Harley with floorboards).
  • Seated positioning is fine for a limited time (DRZ seat).
  • Performs better once on the move.
  • Side & centre stands are weak & collapse if asked to support the frame stand still for any length of time.
  • Overall, the frame is noticeably slower than pre-repair & is lacking endurance - but appears to be improving as mileage increases
  • Fuel overflow still has some sporadic issues, which creates a feedback loop, overheats the engine, & slows the whole system down.

The longest break I’ve had from work for 17 years… And I don't have to do the dishes, or make the bed...
