    Alright pojkars and flickors…it’s time to cut the fat!!

    At 326lbs (148 Kg), it shouldn’t be too difficult to get this little guy below the 300lb mark.

    The object here is to eliminate, remove and reduce weight by any means but naturally, keep the bike rideable and (relatively) safe.

    The formula is basic…regardless of how minuscule…weight reduction of any kind adds up:

    Pounds
    – Ounces
    – Grams =
    SPEED

    Anything you can think of via part removal, part swap, part modification, part substitutions, internal/external, including concepts and ideas qualify. Aluminum vs Titanium, Carbon vs Plastic, Helium vs Air…whatever it takes to lighten up…let’s see it!

    Not yet…I have to factor in the items I’ve replaced with the ones I’ve calculated but I think I’m pretty close. I know I suggested that the object is to get to 300lbs but I’ve seen some of the Rc300 guys get down to 275. Im pretty sure we can pull it off.

    Thanks for weighing all the stuff I took off my bike for me! That stupid, fugly tire hugger fender really chapped my hide prior to its removal. I swear the rear is way more composed in mid corner bumps now that the shock doesn’t have to damp all that weight hanging off the end of the swingarm

    Sorry to report; Although the the accessory foot pegs are nicer than the oem’s, they’re marginally heavier.

    Don’t know why they weren’t hollowed out like they were on the concept bike…guess I’ll have to have them machined =-/
