The most concerning thing for me is that the 2022 was supposed to be thicker to prevent this.

Don't think I have seen the frame crack in that area.

Not a common place from what I've seen either.

22 did beef up the frame thickness in certain areas, but not the entire frame is my understanding.

Welcome from Tucson AZ. Something like that "could be" outside the scope of a 6 month warranty. If you haven't rolled like you say, I would still bring it back and ask the dealer to start a claim. Good luck.

I put a set of digital calipers on the down tube on my 21 yesterday and today on a 22. I don't know where they thickened the tube or went larger on the 22 but it wasnt on the down tube. Good luck with getting the crack fixed. If they don't own it drill a small hole at both ends of the crack so it stops cracking, and any good welder can fix that right up. Dual Phase 980 tube at 1.85 OD doesn't have any wall thickness options from any US vendor but don't know where CA sources there steel.

When you say down tube, the tubes the shock reservoir mounts ?

If so that tube is non structural, I would not expect that to be changed.

No the down tube where the door mounts to. I would think this tube being on an angle is acting as a gusset for the rear of the chassis. I also have one under the driver seat in the rear. I did speak to the dealer they contacting brp because even they said 1450ish miles I shouldn’t be seeing this. He did say that warranty is one thing but since this is chassis related it’s a safety thing so there might be hope keeping all fingers, toes,arms and legs crossed lol

They thickened the wall thickness in certain areas, not the entire frame.

Yeah Down tube as in Lower B Pillar not where the reservoirs mount. Checked there and then on the rear horizontal tube that runs along engine tranny. Only thing I could find was an upgrade on the 2020 model that calls out the tube where the trialing arm mounts are and the upper rear shock mount tube. The 2022 does call out 30% just don't know where that 30% increase is located. OP, hope your dealer does you right .

the book said All tubes 46.9 (1.85) had thickness changed from 1.4mm to 1.8mm
That is 30 percent more.

By my calculation 1.8 MM Should be .070. Inch. That's pretty thin material.

I just thought about the original material at 1.4 mm and realized that is .055.

I cannot believe they think .070 is adequate let alone .055.

Edit typo
