Probably meant subframes. Probably doesn't know 03's already have AL subframes. Most people at motorcycle shops are worthless and know nothing. I saw a guy go into a shop asking if his newly purchased XR600 was a 1 or 2 cylinder. The guy behind the counter asked "How many head pipes?", "2!", "How many Carbs?", "2!", "Well then your bikes a 2 cylinder." This was in Victorville Honda in the mid 80's, but who the hell would ever think a (normal) dirt bike under 650cc would have more than 1 cylinder.

Best advice, read the magazines with an open mind to the future of motorcycles, but ignore any BS you hear at the shops.
