Another weak link located

I was installing my aux battery yesterday in the rhino and found my two top frame supports cracked right behind the main vertical supports located behind the front shocks.

I say another weak link due to this being the second issue with the frame. My first was the engine mounts that are attached to the frame. Yamaha paid a third party to fabricate and weld the part. I approved that work to be done since it was the fabricator of my choice.

You ask why Yamaha would pay for this work on a machine with over 5000 miles and almost 3yrs old.
YES is why! Yamaha Extended Service

But really it is you Dealer's Service Dept. A good relationship and a honest one at that pays off!

But this YES issue will tell all I guess. From what I understand YES will cover this issue if no signs of abuse (accident) is the reason and the replacement cost does not exceed the WHOLESALE Value of the unit. It is an 07 Camo Edition, which the MSRP was $10,050.00 in 11/06.

Not sure how to attach photos, been trying to do it for the past 1/2
