My Father went snooping out in my shed today and knocked my bike off the stand and i bent up my subframe, it's pushed about 2" (at back of fender) over to the RH side, any ideas on how i can try to straighten it, I almost cried, especially when I found out it costs $499.99 CAD plus tax, OUCH!!!!!!!!!
I fubared mine pretty bad once. I left the subframe on the bike and removed the sidepanel. Then using a 1/2 emt conduit bender (you should be able to borrow one from a electricain) started bending it a little bit at a time. It worked out really well.

I could only find YZ ones, and they don't have the tabs for mounting the overflow coolant bottle
is that the ONLY difference? for the savings, I'd have my buddy weld something onto if necessary.
