Hayabusa frame

I have a 1999 hayabusa that I have owned from new it has done 8000 miles and is totally standard it has hardly been used i noticed recently when I was changing the battery that the subframe is cracked at the weld my partner only weighs 8 stone so i dont know how this happened I phoned suzuki and told them about it and they where not interested I know I could replace the subframe myself but there could be lots of other low mileage hayabusas  tucked away in garages with this problem is there anything I can do to get suzuki to accept responsibility or any goverment body that I can complain to?

Hi 1django

I seem to remember this problem being a recall item on some Busa's.

Perhaps if KCMC spots this thread he will let you know for sure.

Busa subframe

This was a problem for Hayabusas that had luggage fitted, and if the owner had fitted aftermarket silencers. The OE silencers acted as a brace for the subframe.

Suzuki issued a STEEL tube subframe that the owner could purchase (less than £200). Another company made a small brace to fit to the ali subframe.
There's plenty of subframes on ebay, including the STEEL ones.

Thanks for your help i have bought a new alloy subframe from ebay for £6 and I saw a steel one for £20 so I bought that as well it is just very worrying because I don't carry luggage and my exhausts have never been removed the bike is a 1999 but it looks like it has just rolled out of the showroom this may happen to someone else and they may not notice it and it could cause an accident I would just like to get suzuki to accept this but I don't know how to go about it
