There are not a lot of other choices for subframes... So I was kinda stuck AC Racing... but it has turned out to be a great find. Installed with very little frustration and re aligned my bike perfectly! I cannot attest to the strength, but so far so good! If you need a subframe, this it the one you should get!

Almost exact fit feels much stronger the Oem . I'd say save 200$ and buy this subframe you won't be disappointed!!!
The product came and looked like it was bent, but I tried to put it on my bike anyway. There was no way to make it fit without bending it, so I decided to return it and buy the OEM part. Motosport made me pay the return shipping myself because I couldn't exchange it for the OEM yet, due to it being more expensive. Bad experience with both AC Racing and Motosport.
All the bolt holes and air box lined up. I've had it on my bike for 6 months and I haven't had any problems.
So far this frame seems as durable as OEM. Bolted right on and no issues with any plastics, seat, or muffler. so far I'm glad i bought this frame. it saved me a bunch of money after a bad crash broke the OEM frame.
I bought this subframe too save money from OEM. Do not make the same mistake as I did. The fit was terrible, the quality looks like it was made at a middle school shop class from scrap metal out of a dumpster and after 6 rides the welds had broken in two places. I contacted AC Racing and notified them. Their response was for me to pay for it too be shipped and welded. Save your money and go OEM.
Good price for a subframe and fits pretty easily BUT the mounts dont hold up well at all and it bends way too easily! I layed the bike over ever so slightly and it bent! The exhaust mount stripped the threads the first time we remounted the exhaust and the thing didnt hold up well at all! Wouldn't buy it again. Pay more for a good OEM!!
mine fit perfect but it bent after 3 races and the top bolt thread stripped out and silencer hole had to be re taped... but hard to beat the price!
Weighs exactly the same as stock about 2.2 lb. Very nice welds, n machining! All steel thread inserts, except muffler mount. Looks great, especially at about half price of OEM.
The not so good:
Requires minor tweaking to fit initally. Noticeably weaker than stock! Was my fault, but dropped bike loading it after first ride n bent it... classic example of 'ya get what ya pay for'!!!!
the ac subframe wieghs way more than my stock '05 crf 250f subframe. its bulky. and no where near the quality of the stock one. the bolt holes dnt line up and the casting holding one if the nuts in broke and i had 2 jb weld it. it gets the job done but is no where near the quality of stock...
