So the 47X frame does not have welded on upper radiator mounts?

Is the subframe also different? It appears the subframe of the RZV and the 47X differ.

Well, the one steel frame I have is the 47X type - I am using it as a jig right now but will have no use for it in the future as it has no radiator mounts.

If anyone needs a 47X style frame let me know.

They both have welded upper radiator mounts, it`s the gusset plate with the hole which is different on the 1GE.

The front subframe for the RZV is different but the 47x and 1ge are the same,see link.

Can you PM the 47x frame number for my records?.

Regards Steve

Interesting. So there are not a "47X" generaioin 52X frames then? This frame has no radiator mounts welded on and the subframe stops short of the taillight mounting assembly - almost as if there is a third seciton that bolts on the carry the tail light.

The RZV subframe goes all the way from the tailpipe mounts to the taillight bracket.

The frame actually has a 52X number.

So the three differences in the front between the 47x and the 1GE are the tank mounting, the gusset and the front sub frame mount, am I correct.
