Just check your bike here and there and if nobody else comes up with anything like this then we know its a fluke thing and nothing to worry about.

The reason for the post was simply to let people know there could possibly be an issue and if we let everyone know to look we would then know if it was an issue or not.

Doug rides hard and we have tons of tight trails, burms and other turns so maybe he is just bashing it lock to lock too hard??? Cant really imagine it would bend like this if it wasnt an issue but we'll see if anyone else replies back with similar issues.

I believe the owner of this LTR ran head first into a tree and thrashed his front end a while ago. I wouldnt take this as a sign of bad luck quite yet. Anyone who lawn darts his bike into a tree is going to have issues with their bike.

^^^  Yep.  Same guy has a thread about whacking a tree, with no apparent damage to the bike - just the tree. 

I checked mine yesterday, and there's nothing like this at all happening at the steering stem area.  That area is pretty solid.

LMAO, dont be so fast to jump to conclusions guys. The tree that was tagged was a small sapling and was tagged at low speed and the quad climbed the tree and left NO damage not even a scratch in the paint on the A-Arm just tore the soft saplings skin off.

Da_Zukikid is a Frame and Body guy and has been for about 15 years not to mention he is a Super anal meticulous guy that keeps his stuff spottless and we always hand wash and inspect our bikes after EVERY ride so this damage popping up a month after the tree incodent is is in no way related.

If you pay attention to the photos you will see the cracks that are forming are from the Frame Stop being pushed Up and Forward by the Stem Stops.

Pretty simple stuff here boys, like I said on ATVTech.net "Maybe this is an iceolated case and maybe Doug is just a Beast on the Bars" who knows.

You should all check your bikes and be SURE you have no issues, Suzuki made a good bike for sure, I am Honda man but I love the LTR, they just need to Fiore who ever designs their frames .

Here si the link tot eh Tree collision.

Take it for whats its worth BUT make sure you check your bikes, I do not want to see anyone get hurt .
