03 ltz 400 grab bar situation

4 posts in this topic

As a lot of people know, the o3 ltz, kfz, and trx 400s came with a subframe that did not allow you to remove the grab bar and put on an aftermarket one like the newer models. I was wondering how in the world i can put on a new grab bar on my 03 z400. Is there a special type of grab bar for them or something?

I believe there are some aftermarket bars that bolt to the permanently mounted stock one using u-bolts. I have seen some, but they may have been custom made for all I know. The other option is to replace the subframe, there are some '03 models that did come with a bolt on grab bar, get the sub frame from one of those, and go from there. There was an option for it on the K3 and K4 models, and it was standard on the K5, K6 and K7's

I was just wondering if an 04-08 would fit my 03 z400. The 04-08 subframes can take a different grab bar, thats why i want it! Thanks:biggrin:

I merged this with your last thread on the same topic, if the subject hasn't changed you can keep posting in the same thread. The '03-'07's are all the same, there are 5 models, the K3;K4;K5;K6;and K7. The K3 and K4 have a different frame and used both subframes, some had the permanent grab bar, and some used the one with the removable grab bar. The K5, K6 and K7 use a slightly different frame and only had the option of the removable grab bar. In '08 and '09 there is only one model and they all use a subframe with a removable grab bar. I would think that any subframe from '03-'07 would work, but since the frame #'s are different, the only way to be sure is to get the one off of a K3 or K4 model with the removable grab bar.
