Yeah. With the old chainstay bridge. Cracked in half.

It had a hole drilled where the maximum stress would be. This caused crack propagation from the drilled hole. Easy oversight.

Fisher replaced it with an updated beefed up design, that I'm confident will not have the same problem.

09's should be fine. & 08's with the updated arm

Search works good too.

Same issue here with the swing arm - cracked at holes. Mine was from a very early batch and the swingarm was redesigned to correct problem.

I got scared and sold it when I got the replacement swingarm, but wish I had kept it now that I see the problem was solved. Great handling bike and very efficient.

Mine broke and got replaced with a swingarm that looks beefed up. I haven't heard of any problems with the new design
