Welcome to the site!

I agree! Get that frame taken care of properly.
Personally if I see a bike with frame damge, then it meets the trash lot. However I don't know much about frame repair work and how long it lasts.

Question zx6d,zx7r with craked frame

the frame is being replaced not welded although it didnt crack completely
adout 1inch on both sides of the weld ,paid 1200 for the bike its a 96zx7r
with 4800miles just over 700 for the frame and its about 8hours labor,
plus iam having the fram polished befor its installed,only other damage
was a bent rim & cracked upper fairing which the guy who is installing
the frame sold me the faring in excellent shape and the rim used with
a tire for 250 bucks it will have a savage title but who cares,i brought
my zx6 and its a nice bike no problems yet with a salvage title and i paid
more for it the zx6 is my first bike ,zx7 is my second.so for 2600 bucks
total i dont think its bad deal.
