NOT A LOT of weight to be reduced.
Can loose the bags, triple tail, bag racks, the dash (need to re-install a headlight), still weigh in on the other side of DANG HEAVY.
Dirt Tires (TKC80s) on Both ends will up the sprung weight so, what's the options.
Rode my 2011 GS last year and had a blast. Don't over think the weight. Keep it real with your skill level and you will be fine. Great crowd and lots of help outside the stages if you need it.
