Welcome aboard & congrats on getting an R. Like the norm said frame repairs aren't too difficult just be sure to remove the ignition before you do any welding on the frame.

nice bike with a little patience welding and grinding you can patch that hole with great results.

Broken1, Douglas, thanks guys. Iím feeling a lot better about this repair. Feeling even better that I found this forum. Everyone has been more than friendly and helpful.

Hickwheeler messaged me about sending me a piece of frame for the repair and I will send him a text tomorrow and see what we can get rolling.

Iíve been in the garage for the last couple hours setting up my front suspension correctly. Caster, camber and toe should be proper now. It was all thrown together very poorly, but itís nothing that canít be corrected.

Thanks again for all the comments and help guys. Really appreciated.

I bet if @Pumashine see's this he can get you everything you need for the repair and all of the other gussets. We've seen frames way worse than that get repaired. But that's a great start for a 250r!

Man it sure feels good to hear that. I was a little bummed that maybe the deal wasn't so great after finding the busted frame, but if it's easily fixed that's great. The rest of the quad seems to be pretty solid. It has fired up every single time I've kicked it on the first try.

Can't say thanks enough. You guys rock.

Front engine mounts ordered from Pumashine. Realized one of mine was broken. The .120" 304SS should last a lifetime.

I will be ordering the gusset kit as soon as I have a plan in motion to fix the frame.

Tighten all the engine mounting bolts & suspension mounting bolts to the torque spec in the manual, keep the headstay in place & check them all once in awhile & you shouldn't have anymore frame issues unless you like to jump like Dale Renny.

I figured there was suppose to be something on those bracket on and around the head.. looks like someone had plenty of money for parts and lack of ability or caring when it came to assembly, but Iím used to it after the projects Iíve picked up from others. Iím almost done with the front suspension and I will work my way back.

Thanks for the heads up Broken1. I was unaware of the headstay. I will buy one ASAP. Would anyone recommend the billet ESR piece?

Man, that is tempting. Seems like a solid price.

What's the scoop on me using a early model frame? SOmething with the rear engine mount and swingarm versus being frame mounted as my rear mount is.

Foot peg mounting seems different as well. Hmm.. doing some homework.

I really hate to spend any more honestly and I still need helmet and boots and new tires.. Dang. I wanna be rich when I grow up!  ;D

it is actually a great price, considering it already has a Pumashine gusset kit and is powdercoated.  you will spend that getting your current frame up to speed.
