OK i think i am cursed or something because i cant seem to keep accessories from breaking on my bike. I started on a rebel two years ago and in that time i lost a rear foot-peg , cracked my crash-bar 5 times and lost a highway peg twice. Now i have a 01 VLX 600 and love it but my highway bar has broke on both sides where it mounts to the frame, today i discovered a crack in my gas tank (Which is a tank from an 01 Magna and was put on before i bought the bike). I have about 52 Thousand miles on the bike and the previous owner put 25 of those on and never had any issues. Not sure what is causing this but sure wish i could find out.
