Rear Chassis Broke

**A fix

What is circled in green is the piece that broke. Has this happened to anyone before? Is this structural? I have a buddy that is a welder and can weld it up, I’m just wondering if it will affect the rest of the chassis or if it is purely for mounting the read pod to?

As the break is behind the bearing hanger, I doubt a weld will have any adverse effect .
I would ‘sleeve’ the joint internally with a tight fitting tube,and weld away. Probably be better than new.

Your sprockets and chain need replacing as well, i can see the gap half way around the sprocket.

A weld will be of no concern. I do however have to agree that your sprocket has a lot of ware.

It’s definitely structural with the bearing hanger and engine mounting there, but as a few have mentioned, it will weld up just fine to get a few more miles out of it. I especially like John’s suggestion of sleeving it.

Yea, I just replaced it this weekend. I’m new and my son has been driving the crap out of this thing! Thanks for the reply!
