I guess removing the ABS paraphernalia should help with weight reduction.

Didn't notice the crossmember being bent earlier, that would probably need to be cut out and a stronger piece welded in with the ears already attached of course. I weld and mod, so could fix that ONE, but the design still exists, I don't like it.

P.S. Oh yeah, the GS is pretty heavy right now. Weighed my wife's 658 with bags and bars, only 15lbs lighter than my Tiger with full tank of gas and bags, bars. So don't start trying to sell me how light it is, not buying that either.
