Afternoon all. Just wondering if this is anything to be worried about. It's not cracked or anything. Just a dent Photo

From what I can see, I would have it reinforced. But that's just me.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Is there a skid plate I could get that could do that

Maybe it’s the picture but it looks like a hole was punched through the tube. I would want that reinforced. Not an expensive or difficult job for an experienced tig welder.

Question: If one were to repair that by TIG welding some material over the area; does the
heat weaken the area in any way? Are frames heat treated after assembly and would welding
them change that or something?

If you decide to have it welded/ reinforced, make sure you unplug your ECU/CDI box.
It could fry it, if you forget ! Happened to me !!

IMO, it’s probably fine, throw a good works connection skid plate on it and then keep an eye on it, I’ve seen way worse.

Did you punch a hole in it or just dent it?

I had something similar on my previous bike. It will be fine. They build in safety margin during design.

Personally I would fix it if it has a hole in it. I would always be thinking about it.

Welds just harden the material. If you have it stress relieved it wont be a big deal.

Tbh as long as its not punctured id put a skid plate on and ride.

I wouldn't worry about it, but skid plates are definitely worth having, even on strickly moto bikes you can get the smaller glide plates.

That is why I run these, I use to race motocross when big rocks was on a track, Since I have been running these last 15 years I have had 0 dents.

If there is ha hole punched in the tube, I would absolutely get it repaired by a professional welder! Aluminum is sensitive to stress risers, and that hole punched in the tube is def. that...

I get the off road plate, the sx plates are a joke. A few extra lbs wont hurt me a bit.

If it were mine, I'd find a reputable welder and have it fixed. Don't forget to unplug your ECU before welding.
