Subframe/rear tail frame replacement

Dear all,
My apologies if this is not right place to post this question. This is my first posting here, so admin please replace it if I am wrong.
I have 2016 V Strom 650 ABS and after insignificant crash I have my right passenger foot rest bent in place where its connected to the frame. So, lugs were bent and I can see/feel (when touching) some minor cracks in them.
My question is how complicated this could be and how long this procedure would take to replace entire subframe in case I order one from say, bikebandit, for example? Does anyone replace it? Please share your experience.
Thank you for helping out!

Do you carry a passenger?

Could be the cracks are just in the powdercoat. Should bend back pretty easy, use a big crescent wrench.

Doesn't look like the subframe is bent. Look at the alignment from the rear.

Not a big deal replacing the subframe it's just bolted on. Of course there's a bunch of stuff bolted to it..
