Thoughts on chopping the subframe?

Recommended Posts

Hello, the 230 has a heavy steel subframe, on the 230l it's even worse. What are your thoughts on chopping the subframe for something alot smaller like this?

You could easily have an aluminum one made.  While I like a chopped or minimum look, that is over the top IMO.

I can't weld aluminum unfortunately. Over the top as in what? too ugly or not functional?

I wouldn't trust that seat to my nads is all I'm saying LOL.

If you hit a solid seat hard enough to break the seat then your nads are already destroyed haha. Stand up more

Maybe this style is more suitable:

just want to chop off the gigantic subframe on my street legal 230, they come huge/thick/heavy to carry a passenger + passenger foot pegs. I don't need all that extra weight. I want it to be as small as possible. Wanted to know the best way or if there is anyone who did something similar. I mean look at this, ridiculous. It's thick steel and weighs about 20 pounds.

^^^^ Oh WOW lol,  I now understand hahaha.  I would think it's safe to get rid of everything past the muffler mount.  That's pretty much all I have on my XL200r.
