It might be easier (healthier) to have the rider loose a few pounds...
I replaced battery with shorai, saved 8 lbs, more importantly, way high up on bike. Replaced stock mirrors w bike masters $17 a pair, at least 3 lbs, again way high on the bike. Arrow exhausts maybe 20 lbs, not sure.
Anyone know how to change out the very heavy front foot peg stanchion? They must weigh ten lbs each.
What other 19 inch front wheels might fit? Stock steels weigh a ton. I am ok with non spokers.
Rear wheel also heavy. Will the Bonnie cast wheel save much and will it fit?
Lighter rear pegs? Gotta have something there.
Kickstand is a great dea. Mine is too short anyway. Anything out there in aftermarket?
I love this bike now. 02 sensor eliminators from power commander and throttle cam from G2 both made amazing improvements in throttle control.
