er uh, maybe you did not read this paragraph:
Upon taking a closer look at the damaged Suzuki frame it is clear that the weld was inadequate as indicated by the photographs below. The break in right down the middle of the weld. Futhermore, when one takes a closer look at the weld it is clear that the weld had zero penetration for the majority of the welded area. "This all makes perfect sense now. This thing came apart on me at the top of turn one just as I was counter steering at well over 100 miles an hour entering the turn."
It didn't just happen last weekend, it wasn't at an AMA event.
Try getting all the facts before you go spouting off.
The bike hit a wall at 100+ mph at which part it came apart. There were several witnesses to this. Experts HAVE already reviewed the findings and analyzed the frame and have determined that it was due to a crash impact.
Btw, we already have like 10 threads on this, we don't need one more from some moron like you claiming to be an authority on this.
just be honest with yourselves - the K5 is the worst bike ever in terms of wall-hitting kudos
i saw steve Mcqueen jump an old war hack over a 30 foot fence @ 130mph in that film and that frame didnt crack - and that bloke in the film RONIN, who was tail ended by the chase car at a ton - his frame didnt crack either
bikes arent made like they used to be anymore and because of this global K5 problem - i wouldnt have a K5 if kylie was sat on it offering a free bike with every suck of her good tit
