The itch to ride needed scratching sooner than I thought, so I ended up going with plan B.

On the left side the plastic had torn from the metal insert due to a snapped bolt on the right side placing all force on the left only. I bolted everything in place then wrapped carbon fibre around the insert, and back behind the cross-member.

I had some carbon fibre and resin lying around from a previous pipe guard project.

I also removed the broken bolt and instead of using light weight KTM bolts there, I now have sproket bolts instead.

I gave it a full tank of fuel workout today and it has held up fine.

Are you still getting an alloy subframe in?
I looked again at the one we sorted here, it ended up with great big ali pop rivets and hasn't been an issue since... but knowing where to find a replacement may come in handy.

I can't find any link to an aluminium subframe on this thread, is that what you're implying there?

I will stick with what I've got for now, but some time down the road I may tidy it up to move it on, and that should probably include a new subframe.

I actually like the plastic one, if it wasn't for KTM's light weight breakable bolts the plastic subframe would probably still be just fine with my 90 kg fully geared up riding weight.

I believe the plastic subframe is more resilient, I have had to have aluminium ones re-welded and straightened in the past. And I have no doubt this bike has been abused as much as my previous bikes.
