Well guy I was looking at my front fenders one night and they just didn't look level. I measured and one side is 1"1/4 lower than the other! I took them off and looked at the mounts. One side where the mount bolts on had pulled a peice of the frame out a little bit. Not the tubing, just a flat peice that streatches from one part of the frame to the other. I unbolted the mount and hammered the piece back in, put it all back together and the plastics sat the same hight. The part of the frame that comes up behind the radiator has spots in the corners where you can see there was stress (paint cracked). But not any worse looking than on a-arms or shock mounts. It doesn't appear to be bent. I looked all over my from for 45 min. I can't figure it out. :bk:

Should be OK for some time but check the area each months or so for cracks. If it cracks, you will need to add reinforcement gussets or back plate it but stop the crack before doing so by drilling a small hole where it ends.
Keep on riding hard buddy... :))

Thanks guys, I don't think the frame it'self is cracked, just the paint from what I can tell but I think my frame must be bent somewhere to make the fenders sit the way they do. :shrug:

The only way to know is to strip the area with sand paper and then inspect it well.. You will know then if it is the paint or the frame is cracked.. If the frame is cracked you will have to remove the paint anyhow.. I know the thoughts sucks but to be sure that is how you can tell

You are right 04raptor04, but you have to remove the paint with paint remover because by sanding it off, you will fill the crack & he won't be able to see it after. :))
