Rear sub frame

I`m just wondering if anyone has a picture of a standard sub frame. I was told by the PO that mine has been strengthened. I cant tell without comparing. Are they known to be weak? Oh its a 03 mod.
Cheers.

I have one laying around in the basement; if nobody else comes up with some pics before I get there (in let's say 6 hours or so), I'll try to take some pics if I don't forget ;)

You are in luck have a spare in the apartment right now:

KTM 950 Adventure suframe

EDIT: might add im not sure from what year this is but from what I understand there is no difference other then paint on later models and not sure if the Adv subframes are prone to failure as long as all mounting bolts are in place not uncommon for them to come undone so they are worth looking over every now and then have a had them come out several times even if using loctite on them.

Many thanks. Mine does not look any different so I either misunderstood or he was pulling my leg. I thought the bracing might have been what he was talking about. But I see it on yours too.

Cheers.

Clarification

It is the Super Enduro that is prone to failure....Well, at least it is for some of us SE owners.... .

I think Aurel had a failure on his rear subframe.

Maybe you could ask him.
Cheers.
