    Considering the bike for a long term usage, should I get a new chassis or get it repaired by welding (if possible)?

    If it can be repaired, where?

    If new chassis is to be purchased where can I get one in Chennai? and its cost?

    I also read threads regarding the legal issues for changing the chassis. Pls clarify.

    Thanks in advance.

    1) Looking at the extent of damage I suggest to get it replaced with a new one
    2) If you are still looking to get it repaired, PM me. Remember, the cost of repairing + painting should be close to the new one
    3) Safe bet - from authorized dealers (if they are ready to support you) I wait for Sriram to give a reliable pointer, else PM me. Should cost around 4k
    4) New frame with proper invoice shouldn't be an issue

    Thank you for the reply.

    If cost of repairing and painting is going to cost close to new ones then I might as well go for a new frame.

    A local dealer in my area quotes a new original frame at around 5K and he says its genuine Yamaha part. but I don't know if I can rely on him.

    I would like to know where to get a new original frame.

    The chassis can be restored. The advantages of restoring the chassis us that you don't have search for she'd to punch number.

    As @Mr.Boss said, we need to take a due consideration of cost as well.

    I would rather suggest you to speak to RTO to know the procedure to change chassis.

    If you buying chassis, preserve the bill for RTO documentation.

    I would suggest you to ring Mr.Boss to take it further.
