Thanks for taking the time to weigh it in for me. Good to hear that they are pretty accurate on the weights they are listing. Do you see any heavy hitters that could be removed/replaced to reduce the weight?


Now take it out, wring it out and report back

The manual lists "wet weight" (oil + full fuel) at 298lbs for the CA model (which is what I have), so I'd say their number is pretty close, since I ran a bit of fuel out of the tank yesterday having fun.

I have to say though, pushing it around the garage, and definitely while riding, she carries her weight well, because I'd swear this bike weighs less than my KTM 520 which was listed at approx. 250lbs dry, where the WRR is listed at 278lbs dry.
