My bike is FAT!!

I was at Pocono FUSA and Solid Performance had a bike scale. So I gave the $10 and wanted to see what it came in at.

410lb with a full tank of gas, Race fiber glass and empty tail section (- splash guard) Slip on and 520 conversion with light sprockets. And the R6 was under 400lb

That is a ton of weight to shave off. Can you write a single description of what works best and fastest and post it here?

I think most of the weight was the kill switch on the kickstand, ignition, and the bas. Then I shaved the plastic off the subframe, everything on the outside of the bars. Fork dust covers, front sprocket cover. rear brake res, chain guard, ram resinators and alot of nuts and bolts that are just overkill.

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 run a full tank of gas? I don't know about you - but I could stand to lose 10 - 15 lbs myself - so until I do that, I can't justify trying to lighten my bike.

With a 1/2 of gas and a diet - I could shave 20lbs off my ride.

I just thought to take off the tool kit on the right side. That should help too.

For as long as I can remember, Hondas have always seemed heavier than their competitors, but the handling and smoothness has always made up for that. I think if Honda could be within a few ponds of others each year, then they would win everything :).

Yeah, but you don't see too many threads about a honda steering neck snapping off when you set a wheelie down either.
