Bent Subframe

Crashed during race this weekend, slightly tweaked subframe. Good swift kick from opposite side pretty much straightned it. First question: does tweaked subframe affect handling, any recomendations for fixing? Bent to left and up. :D:D:)

If it is only tweaked slightly, I doubt you will notice very much difference in handling. I would remove the subframe (remove the rear fender and airbox) and attempt to straighten it with a little persuasion from a pry bar (just don't get carried away). After you remove the rear fender, it might be easier to tweak it back into shape while it is still on the bike. Be sure to inspect the welds for cracks.

I have a 2001 YZF sub-frame I can sellyou cheap, that shouldfix it. Dave 740-323-3251
