I have a bent subframe from a 03 ZX6RR, my question is:

is it worth having some machine shop bend it back into shape or just toss it in the recycle bin?

Thanks :D

I don't think a 05'-06' subframe will fit a 03'-04'. I know the 05'-06' swingarm will fit.

As far as the subframe being bent, how bad is it bent? When i had my 1rst 03'-04' I tweaked mine and ended up just taking a long pipe and bending it back.

I wouldn't just scrap it, unless it's just beyond repair.

new one can be found on ebay for 100 bucks. Do that and take all the bushings etc off your old one. Dont think the 05 will fit ;)
