  • chassis after crash

    Do u think that the chassis (rear part) can "move" in a crash if the muffer hit the road ?

    If yes, how detect it ?

    By eye? Look at it from the rear and see if it looks right. It would be possible for it to be tweaked in a crash.

        I would suggest to take the rear fairing off and see if the chassis is straight

          Bodgey TLS exhaust. I hate the way they are not symetrical.

                      The plate that is welded to the rear subframe tube..that hold's the muffler hanger normally bend's first..then the rear plastic get's it next ..... after that the subframe itself might bend a bit..but it's easy to spot as said above
                      Have you checked your Radiator and the steering stop lug on the frame... The Radiator will bend as soon as the plastic hit's the road (even falling off the side stand)... same for that lug,as soon as the clip on hit's, that puny lug bend's

                        The same way you tell if the frame on a car is straight. Use a piece of string and measure the length of each side. Then, do the same for the diagonals. The measurements (right side vs. left side; diagonal vs. diagonal) should be nearly equal. If not, the sub-frame is probably bent.

                            rear plastic has not hit the road.
