The sub can be bolted on, as far as I know, but then none of your 426 plastics or seat will fit.

All of the 426/250F subs were aluminum. Earlier ones were painted. As stated, the '01-'02 YZ250F is also a direct fit.

I was! It knocked me out for a short amount of time. But luckily, no broken bones just some sore muscles!
