Uh.... that's an engine mount broken.
It was a month ago. I was good and my sprained hand is nearly all healed.Sry about the off... and the bike.
Get well first!
But it's not broken all the way thru either. I'll investigate further in the next few weeks by getting that slider/bolt off there.Uh.... that's an engine mount broken.
Thanks for the feedback Chuck. My pea brain isn't fully understanding what you're saying here though. And coming from you, I definitely want to understand it. Could you elaborate or explain a little differently please? ThanksOuch. Might have gotten lucky with the frame. I know there's a company that makes transverse braces for the newer bikes so the frame sliders don't do that. Saw one on a '12 GSXR at the last couple TDs. One side should have a solid mount, and the other side has a pinch bolt. This looks like the lip on the fixed side. If so, I'd clean it up and run it.
Exactly the description I was needing/asking for! Thanks again for explaining it so well, I got it this time!One side of the engine mounts hard to the frame. The other side has bushings/adjusters that allow for a little movement. The hard mount side is also the chain side. Basically, forcing a relative position of the frame, swingarm, and front sprocket. The rear wheel then aligns off the swing arm creating a straight drive line. Parts 13 and 15 in this fiche diagram are these adjusters, and indicate quantity two of 13 & 14 are required. The diagram is a little deceiving. Both parts, as well as #14 go to the right side of the frame. The forward one is where frame sliders mount. If you broke the lip on the left side, it's still a hard mount as long as the meat of the loop is there. It's when you break the clamping force on the pinch bolt for the right side that's a real issue. I think you're good based off the pics. (TBF, I'm thinking seriously about removing my frame sliders).

I do have a way to check.Don't you have a balancing stand? Use that to check runout.
Not sure Chuck. The paper also states that any used warmer can be used for an at least $100 off a new one.Chickenhawk? I sent my front in for repair. The element had come loose and was moving around inside. They said it couldn't be fixed.... If stitching can't be fixed, what exactly does a repair cover?
