I'm looking for experience or examples on how much weight people have put on the sub frame. I know it's not designed to support alot of weight, but I've seen rear tanks, saddle bags, rear passenger pegs, etc... So does anyone have an example of the weight their WR's have held. Looking at long range tanks and soft luggage options. Just trying to get my head wrapped around how much weight I can safely put back there. Thanks.

I have the Pro Moto Billet Luggage Rack on my WR450 with the chainsaw adaptor. I pack the chainsaw this way when I working on trails and am thinking I'm fine with about 50 lbs.
Given that the subframe is aluminimum I wouldn't go too far over the 50 lbs to be on the safe side.
