Well
Cost cutting has an effect on quality I guess.

Holy crap, that's the sort of welding result I do (rank amateur btw).
Looks like a Ducati weld job - I had a Streetfighter owner comment, wishing his welds were like my 2011 model frame.

Hopefully they have someone read the forums. Or their sales dip and they realize it in enough time to make improvements to their design and qc. But Tree is right, if their cost cutting is eating into parts quality AND labor quality, it will be a downward spiral.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Wow, its hard to believe that weld came from a factory and the friction tape work on that harness looks suspect. I cant even explain why they would do that over a preman, sealed harness. That almost looks like it was a rebuild by a 3rd party.

Thumbs down welds?

its just robot MIG welded, instead of hand TIG welded......

they got the garbage wiring harness from Aprilia, looks just like my RSVR

my buddy Bob makes ECUs and wiring harnesses for them......the harness covers are Kevlar lined......not 50 year old 'friction tape'

what bullshit

The quality seems to be going further downhill year by year.

I could care less about welds so long as they hold and are painted.

Now that plastic gas tank is a whole different story
