I need a subframe for a 2004 R1150RT. Hoping to save a few dollars and find a used one. Mounting a Champion Escort. Any leads appreciated.

No used ones, we of course can build you a new one ($775), we also have steering modifications for your bike ($350) and an automotive rear wheel and tire. ($1295)
When looking for a mount used at least with the ones we build it must be for an RT, while an R or GS would fit the bike, you would loose most of your plastic getting it on while the RT mount is designed to work with the RT plastic.

Jay, thanks for the info. As I stated, I am hoping to find a used subframe but am not counting on it. If I do not find a used one, I will very likely get one of yours. I am definitely going to get the steering mod. The car tire will need to wait for a bit.

Well, Looks like nobody has one sitting around in the barn that they want to part with so I just ordered a new one from Jay at DMC. Should be here sometime around the end of Feb. Can't wait. I'll be moving the car from my Airhead to my Oilhead. More power and a larger gas tank.
