weight of the Honder

yesterday we were at NHIS and we went into the scales garage and weighed our bikes.

2003 R6 = 385lbs (almost full gas tank)
2001 Gixxer 750 = 377lbs (1/2 tank of gas)
2004 600RR = 399lbs (1/3 tank of gas)

all three bikes have full Ti exhaust systems, sharkskinz bodywork, etc...all three are completely race prepped. Like me, the Honda needs to go on a diet.

Don't forget, the 2001 Gixxer 750 had aftermarket Marchesini rims on, which he said cut the weight by +7lbs.

So . . .
2001 Gixxer 750 = 377lbs + 7lbs= 384lbs (1/2 tank of gas)

Damn, Guess I better stick to that diet...
Looks like I need to drop another 15-20lbs.

Funny...... I was faster than both brands of bikes last track day.

Oh, hang on ... I did go down and brake my wrist at the end of the day.
Must be that porky bike ; )

My guess is when my R1 arrives it'll be in the 375 Lb range (can't wait). That's pretty embarassing for Honda. I wish they'd really unleash the bike they're capable of building. Like when the F2 came out. It took 5 years for everyone to catch up.

So 3.16 galons of gas weighs 26.8 (@ 8.5 lbs per gal.) for a total 600rr weight of 425.86

04 600rr = 426 pounds (full tank of gas)

41 pounds heavier than the R6...

And Fish's bike weighs 19 pounds less than stock. Nice job buddy! :01_thumbu

but the best part about it all is that it'll stick every one of them on the track and in a few magazine articles(not to bench race) its faster on the track than the compared bikes.

Here is some speculation. Is it possible that Honda was worried that bringing the weight down a little bit to contend with the others' weight could negatively affect the handling charicteristics? The other bikes are a little twitchy with their power arent they? Why would you race with a full tank of gas anyway? I am sure you can get the bike down to their weight range if you really wanted to, but why worry about it if the other bikes can't touch the Honda on the track?

I always try to remember to keep no more than a 1/3 of gas in there per track session but sometimes I get distracted while filling up the tank. Before you know it, 3/4's full and an already not thin bike, just got alot heavier. :)

Mine is fully track prepped too with just about every little thing I could remove but w/out the full exhaust like Tuna's.

I actually believe the 05 weighed in 18 pounds lighter. Honda claimed 9lbs, but every magizine that has tested the new RR weighed it as 18 lbs lighter.

But that is kinda apples and oranges considering we're talking about full race prepped bikes compared to stock.

I know dropping weight is a good thing, but is it something to be obsessed over? That is more or less what I meant.

no, not an obsession, dropping weight for the most part isn't expensive, save the exhaust and raceglass. i think it was just an easy way to get a quick comparo done.

Holy freakin' crap, Tuna! :) If you're doing well at 236, you may just be in MotoGP at 165. My recommendation is mountain biking, especially up north. It's enjoyable, great exercise and when you get to the top of the hill the reward is coming down the other side. I did NORBA national downhills in 94 ... actually saw 58.1 MPH on the track in Helen. It's almost as much fun as racing.

Ssshhhh!!!!

He's fine at 236 . . .

. . . in fact I'm sure he'd be even better at 245.

Gecko, you can go with the "well, the heavier you are, the more you can change the center of gravity with body position" logic on him.

Talking

YOu guys are funny with the diet thing. I'd be thrilled if I could pack on an extra 15lbs. Just weighed myself before bed last night & tipped the scale at a big ole 152lbs. So does that mean that I can afford to ride a much heavier bike & still be wicked fast? :pottytrai

Or maybe it means that on the same bike I'll be lapping Big Tuna LOL
