Whats up with new Suzuki RM85 frames with stickers made in Tiawan ? They look like they were welded by a monkey? Theres welds where the robot mig or whatever went off course and missed the seam altogether. Anybody else???

Just wait until the bikes are assembled in China. :moon:   Welcome to the Corporate Philosophy of Cost Cutting.  Too bad that some of the savings doesn't come back to the consumer, instead we get an inferior product.  :scream:

Whole bike is made there as far as I can tell. They are poor looking welds but hold up well. The quality is not as good as Japanese build minis. They seem to land up with drooppy pegs, loose fittings etc like a mid 80's MX bike not like a 2000+ bike
