Am I alone? I have had my 06 700 for about 4 months, when i got back from the last ride i noticed the top of the tire was leaning in.....Before I left for glamis on Saturday I checked it out a little further and noticed the ball joint was still seated but the stud was bent.....Anyone else had a problem with weak ball joints?

Not heard of any problems with ball joints unless the bike has been lowered for flat track, and it's been jumped.

Most of the problems I've heard of consist of tie rod problems.

Yeah, that sounds a bit high. Unless you can find a bike that someone is parting out.

my boy was riding a wheelie the first day he got his 700 and wiped out...when the wheel hit the street sideways he bent his balljoint like i've never seen before...almost sheered it off. it happens.

THATS THE WEIRD PART....IT DID NOT POP APART, THE STUD IS ACTUALLY BENT BUT IS NOT CRACKED, I WAS WORRIED ABOUT IT SNAPPING THE WHOLE TIME I WAS RIDING THIS WEEKEND
