Exactly. My LC4E has a light weight aftermarket exhaust system, titanium bits and has been stripped of buddy pegs, brackets and everything else I could do without. It is down to right at 300 pounds. Which is not bad considering that makes it comparable to Japanese 250 dual sports.

But then I get on my MXC 200 and it makes me hate the 640 offroad. I can literally carry the 200 over to my work stand and set it on top. The LC4E is everything I can do to yank it up and on top. I was riding with a guy a few weeks back with a WR250R and a plated EXC 200 and he felt the same way about those two bikes.

Riding a 220 pound bike offroad is magical. Something we have forgotten since dual sports first packed on that extra tonnage back in the 1980's and never lost it.
