Ya... i dont think it was normal wear and tear thats for sure! anything will break when ya push it to the limits. Some KTM frames are breaking too.

I've heard of some Can-am frames getting bent or cracked... but it was from harsh contacts with other quads or stationary objects. . . i've pushed mine pretty hard and came up short on some bigger jumps without any problems.

Same with me, It seems can-am really got the frame right, which is a good thing for sure.

the bottom plate on canam frames is forged aluminum=bends not cracks, and if any component is bend or broke it can be removed and replaced with a brand new piece and hardware, much nicer than welding up a cracked or broken piece of aluminum

i think brent sturdivant's dad told me the only people who can get the pieces of the frame separate is people that have a factory deal. this may not be true because it was a long time ago, but i'm 50% sure it is. when i broke the foot peg mount off mine the dealer & can am was wanting me to buy a new frame.

houser makes a bracket for the arms that mounts to the frame to help keep it from bending in...i guess its more common than i thought...cuz i took a look at mine and that weird canter lean that i thought was a trashed shock is starting to seem like maybe the upper mount is just tweaked in. i know the dealer can replace just that section cuz thats what the did with my other side so id ask a couple more dealers if theyre giving you problems. but that houser thing looks like itd be a great investment.
