In regards to a 749/999 (don't know about the others)...
The weight of the seat? Sure
The weight of a person on the seat.... nope.
Plus, mono subframe has no attachment for passenger pegs, and is a lot shorter. The Bi subframe is so long it sticks out from under the mono tail. The Bi tail needs to attach right behind the seat to the Bi subframe - the mono subframe does not have these attachment points as it is much shorter.
I could take pictures and post iffin you want.
I just got a mono tail on ebay and found it won't fit on my Bi subframe without cutting the subframe. So I'm getting a mono subframe and keeping both so I can switch from mono to bi as my needs / mood dictates.....
Trevor- My 748 monoposto, as well as many other mono's, came with a biposto subframe. Don't know why you had trouble fitting your mono tail on a bi-posto subframe- was it a stock tail that you bought, or an aftermarket?
Ian- No prob.
Marco- I'm going to take the subframe off tommorow (Sat.), so please let me know. I'll throw in some cash too to sweeten the deal.
I might be wrong, I may already have a biposto subframe
It seems like I may have a biposto sub frame as well (just like you described yours) I looked at it and it has the holes for the passanger pegs. Does that mean I have the biposto subframe already?
Re: I might be wrong, I may already have a biposto subframe (ducatilover)
Biposto subframe = steel+mounts for passenger pegs, mono = Al, no pass. mounts.
also has different plate for seat latch (surprisingly only $11), spaders, screws.
going from bi to mono requires new mounting of ECU (cable length different), this took me a while to figure out how to cleanly mount and get to fit, inner fender different (different mount points), tool tray not the same.

If I would have known I had a biposto I wouldnt have wasted your time. At least now I know what I got. I saw a mono subframe on ebay. Check there.
