I was tearing my bike down and noticed some type of gusset on the rear frame rail on the right, above where the rear brake master cylinder mounts(pics below). I have checked several pics on this site and have found that many bikes have this gusset while some dont. It seems that the 88 frames have the gusset and the 87 dont. Why did they change this and put it only on one side. just wondering

that spot and the other end at the lower frame rail are nitorious for breaking. I'd imagine they addressed that in 88 for their own reasons, maybe feed back from the fatory team or an engineer took a notion...
