I think your best bet for an aluminum subframe would be from a YZ 426 up to an '02. In '03 the frames and plastic were all new and nothing interchanges. If you find an aluminum sub frame off of a YZ 426 you will either have to get rid of your radiator overflow or weld some tabs to allow you to bolt it up. Your choice. If I were you I would focus on the YZ seat and tank mod. You need a seat and tank off of a YZ up to an '02. It is a bolt on and was the hot ticket back in the day. I did this on my WR 426 and it was a great mod because you are able to slide up farther on the seat. I always thought about finding an aluminum subframe too, but I didn't think that the weight savings would make much of a difference so I gave up on it.
