Default Long term problems people are finding

I'm not trying to bad mouth anyone on FB.
Last night a guy was doing general maintenance on his bike. He found this.

There was a guy that said he wasn't getting good mileage and lost performance. He found this. Maybe we should share more of what these guys are finding

I don't do facebook or any other social media besides this forum so not really sure what is going on in pic #2. Bad oxygen sensor or something? The first pic is kind of scary.

Looks like a swing-arm bolt. Possibly where the rear tip-overs mate-up with the frame. Looks like the person slammed the bike down and broke the support bolt.

Replaced the crap plastic brake and shifter bushings with brass bushings. The slop in the levers was getting extreme.

That bolt in the first picture was over-torqued at some point and cracked it. Rusted out in the center with only the edges hanging on before the break.

As far as long term problems go I'd say my left shoulder and lower back.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Nah mate, just real BAD quality bolts & nuts are used on the vics, see the broken off piece ? Thats all white oxidized .... Crazyyyyy , also the rim shafts rust like that, even the engine bolts & nuts oxidate ... The exhaust is hanging of that bolt, so if this guy had loose exhaust flange bolts, all the pressure will be on that cheap ass bolt ...

I had jap bikes standing in the snow & rain & sun, all year long, ride 6 days a week .... and the bolts looked better then on these vics , garage kept .... Ha ha ha

Might be helpful to others to identify each situation with more information etc? What does the photo depict ? What model, year, mileage, etc and what was done about it?
