Help! Cracked 2010 TXT 300 frame (pics)

Recommended Posts

G'day all,

Looking at purchasing a used 2010 TXT PRO 300 and discovered a couple of tiny cracks in the headstock area during inspection. I found a thread with a much more catastrophic failure on here that had cracks which seemed to emanate from a similar area. I am sure the welds could be repaired, but I wondered if anyone had seen cracking like this before and what you all thought of it in general? Is that gusset on the RHS structural?

I can see the RHS crack goes all the way through, but can't really check the LHS one, it could just be paint. There does seem to be a little bit of a crack in the paint on the weld directly above it also you might be able to see in the photo. 

Any insight would be much appreciated!

Happy trails.

Tk

Gas Gas seem to have a penchant for cracking frames IMHO......................

This was a problem when they were new IIRC.  Since it's now an "old" bike if it were my I'd get a pro welder to put some fresh metal in and then keep an eye on it.
