Does anybody here know of any weak spots on Raptor frames? What about gusset kits? Just a couple of questions with no answers yet.

:rock I had a 2001 raptor i could tell where i had some problems. Front shock mounts, gusset and braced those. Footpeg area where the frame comes up toward sub frame. Subframe mounts(both upper nad lower mounts) Steering stem mount where tube comes up from the frame. The swingarm is weak all over in the welds and the casting. I braced all the frame bends and filled in all the welds where they looked weak.That's all i can think of i had some testing on my 1st frame until i finally broke the old one and got tired of welding. So i used the old frame to help me reinforce the new one before i beat it to hell and back!! Then finally a yfz450 came out and i had a brand new raptor to sell to pay for yfz :rock
