Stress area, Pull the seat. Look at the verticals and diagonals in this area also.

Glad you caught it before it now. That could have got ugly.

Spent all afternoon going over all of the welds, fasteners, fittings, hoses, cables, connections, etc.....and found that the back up plates on the dzus buttons in the center of the wheelbase are worn allowing the center body panels to sag.

Another thing that found was the nuts on the thottle body were loose.

So back to baseline and see what happens......
