I know there have been may posts on this topic - but I'm going ahead anyway!!

I removed all these parts from the bike and weighed them:



.......................:grams pounds cost
AIS System .......524g  1.16 $20
EXUP controller ..500g  1.10 free
Tool Box        .....645g  1.42 free
Charcoal canister 632g 1.39 free
side stand checker 107g  0.24 free
stock sprocket .....851g  1.88 $65 light weight Rethnal
helmet lock .........159g  0.35 free
plastic engine protection 93g  0.21 free
stock mirrors ......633g  1.40 free
passanger pegs ..755g  1.66 free
airbox flapper .....258g  0.57 free
stock tail (excluding tail light) 737g 1.62 free

FMF exhauts + programmer 4.5lb around $800
lithuim battery 3.1lb $160

20.59 Pounds Total wings

I've added a 3 Lb bash plate and hand guards, but not counting the hand guards as I also switch the stock steal bars for light weight Renthal bar so weight is about the same.

Thanks to the help of http://www.wrrdualsport.com/ on the how-to's

20 lbs to me is nothing off my 200 plus lb fat ass, I lost 130 lbs off my bike, took off the rear foot pegs now my wife cant ride on the back. I traded off my 800 lb harley so this bike seems pretty lite.

My fat as is near 215Lb! you're right as a % of total weight it in not much! But fun to get get it off anyway - the next 20lb is coming off my ass!

That's pretty good.  roughly 20lbs lighter...295lbs wet..that's around 275lbs.  pretty good.  When I first bought my WR, I wasn't sure what the big deal was with the weight reduction.  Now, that I ride single track, I can see how weight can make a HUGE difference.  great post!!

The link http://www.wrrdualsport.com/ doesn't work. Is there another location for it?

Thanks,
