:(
Anybody ever attempted to straighten one??
It's about 1c.m lower on the right than the left. I was thinking of using car jacks to try and push it up but I'm scared of snapping the aluminum rails or bending something else.

That'll polish out...

To the guys who keep suggesting that i buy a new one are you talking about the complete frame?? i'm assuming you're aware that the 2001 R1 has a sub frame that is welded to the main frame and cannot be "replaced" by simply unbolting.

Also is possible to buy a sub frame for the R1's below the 02 model, because there not dettachable.

Did you straighten it yourself or did you get it done by somebody?
how was it done (jacks, pullers, big bastard heaving on it??).
Enquiring minds need to know.:jump
