The alloy mono subframe is very lightweight and made out of Swiss cheese.There have been loads of them snapping as mono's,so no way will it cope with a passenger weight.
The genuine mono seat unit will only fit the mono subframe.The bip subframe is a lot higher at the back.I have seen a few where the owner has sawn the rear subframe loop off but the mono seat still does'nt sit right.
Nah,swap subframes,its a dead easy swap and should'nt take any more than an hour with a tea break.
For bip owners wanting the mono look there are alternatives,... like a MotoGP inspired seat unit that bolts straight on,....or a clip on cover that goes in place of the pillion pad.
