In all honesty the only way I could see serious weight savings would be to replace nearly every small metal part with carbon fiber which would be $$$ and the overall weight savings would be negligible

Street bikes can get very light because they make carbon fiber tanks, wheels, and swingarms...... I don't think carbon fiber would hold up well off road
It would hold up just fine, but it would make for a 40K motorcycle, if you could get the parts.
