Aluminum subframe

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can pick up an aluminum subframe? Has anyone tried an aluminum subframe on a YZF? My buddy got one for his XR for only $189 but he can't remember where he got it.

Is it aluminum? Why would they paint aluminum? If it is aluminum can I blast off the paint and not worry about it rusting?

UNCHeel, where do you ride in NC? I live in Asheville.

Not sure what year you ride, but I think the 98 and 99 bikes had round steel tubing. Grab a magnet of the frige and see if it sticks.

The '98 and '99 are both steel, the relacement I remember came from AC engineering, my brother in law got his from a mail oredeer company that I think is called recreation supply, he was happy with the subframe eventually, but not with the mail order place. 2 lbs lighter than stock, if I keep my '98 I'm gonna get one

Hey YZFVirgin!

Nice to meet another NCarolinian! Mostly I ride in Wilkes County, as that is where I live. However, recently a band of us has gotten together, and in 2 1/2 hours we can be in West Virginia. I like it there. You can go as tame or as wild as you want to. Maybe we can hook up sometime. Private me when you get a minute and I'll send you my email!
