Just got call from my dealer. They polished off the powder coat in a 1" area and the FRAME is cracked, not the weld. Weld looks good. This bike has 18050 miles on it, is an 02 ABS, last part of vin is 100803. It was not subject to weld recall. Crack is located on inside of lower left side rail on the main frame. If you remove the left passenger peg and plastic behind it, you will see the top of a weld about 2" behind the last bolt hole for the passenger pegs. There is a rubber gasket that you can push out of the way mounted on the muffler guard. If you squeeze your finger thru just at rear of the top of the weld, that is where crack starts. It continues down and starts around frame. If you have a crack, you can feel it this way. Otherwise you must put bike on lift, put head as close to wheel as possible and look up and to left outside of bike. Area is up just past the fins of the rectifer. Very hard to see area. Dealer had to remove muffle etc to get in there with big glass and mirror. I could see it because of height Pit Bull lift was at when I sat under bike. Bike is 75% 2 up riding, towed a Unigo trailer for a total of maybe 900 miles. Other than that, no abuse etc. Check your frames................. It is real........
