Snapped Subframe

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

 

Not long ago I put a topcase rack + topcase on my x11. I knew about the fragile subframe so never did i put heavy things in the case. Just helmet, gloves and jacket liners etc.. However, I did use the topcaserack as a handhold when putting the bike on the center stand.

 

Anyways. Lately I noticed that my rear body panel seemed to have moved from under the handle. Took a under the seat and saw the following. Stupid question ahead: is this normal or did i snap my subframe.

 

Its on both sides
