Snapped my frame

As the subject states i have snapped the frame on my 04 FS 650!

Got a couple of questions:-

1. Should it get it welded? The break is by the headstock about 10mm above where the two smaller diameter pipes join to it.
2. I have sourced a frame from a 03 fx 650, will this fit?

Thanks

Re: Snapped my frame

DON't buy the older frame! it has a different headstock angle and will change the character of your bike backwards!

if you value development over money saving you'll find another way!

please show us phots as requested.

It can likely be welded, and even improved! Gotta see those pics. BD

Re: Snapped my frame

Re: Frame cracking.

Have not heard of it in the headstock location, but personally know of 1 04 FE650 cracking frame by RHS footpeg.

When discussing it with a 'Berg dealer as it was a warranty claim from memory it turned out that it was not an isolated incident although not common.
