Wondering if you anyone knows where I can get a 700R Raptor gusset kit?
Also anyone having frame problems? If so what areas on the frame?

No frame problems here, It looked like they did a pretty good job from the factory

Right were the exhuast pipe runs behind the rear part of the main frame before it goes into the muffler. The rear section is sand cast and the hole that the foundary used to get the sand out is right there in the inside part of the frame facing in. Just run your fingers around to the inside right were the exhaust pipe is and you will find about a 1" hole there. It cracked all the way around at that spot.

How did you end up fixing the cast part of it?

The paint started chiping on my frame right above the front shock mounts so I welded in two gussets before anything major happened. No problems other than that.

Has anyone actually cracked the welds or frame near where the stem is clamped to the frame at the top.
