05 GSXR Frame Problems?

Maybe a good idea to check the welds on 05 GSXR1000s.


To us, the pictures are hard to understand: where's the weld penetration, is that casted material next to extruded, hence the change in surface texture of the break, or is that weld penetration? Was the bike previously crashed? It may be a production flaw, but don't jump to conclusions until a metallurgist or at least a knowledgable third-party engineer has inspected it. In short, though, glad that no one was hurt!
