well. for one. it makes it possible to use a diferent material read lighter than the main frame. also, if you bust it up you wont have to buy an entirely new frame.

If you ever crash and bend/break your rear end of the bike. Its will be alot easier and cheaper to replace or fix.
I hear the one on the YFZ is pretty strong though.

what is it exactly that one has to do to break or bend this part of the quad?
sounds like a pretty bad crash

Its actually not that hard to do. Mine has a slight tweak to it, just from a simple barrel roll down a hill. It only went around 1 1/2 times in soft sand, but it hit in just the right spot.

Everytime I look at it I get the urge to try to straighten it, but knowing how cast aluminum is, I talk myself out of it, because it isnt cracked, just alittle bent, but that cuold change if I try to force it back into shape.
