what was the myth? jajaja

I was reading the nets a couple of days ago, and some dufus said MAN YOU CAN SAVE 15LBS SWITCHING OVER TO USDS! jajaja

I laughed a bit, goes to show though...

again Im doing this to avoid the huge flex problem I have when riding rough stuff, especially ruts, I always seem to get stuck and cant ride out of them.

in reality its probably me that cant manhandle the bike...I also hate the wallowing effect of the stockers so some rigidity will be nice.

anywhoo

nice bike brt4,

cheers

Tubliss front = 692g, or 1.52 lbs (that's tube, rimlock, etc; everything but the plastic valve caps)

A little heavier than a tube.

I don't have a rear available to measure.



BTW since it's a new page, is it time for someone to remind you how much lighter other bikes are?

I wouldn't know. I've never actually ridden an XRL, so I'll let someone else deliver the lecture. But it seemed really important and I wouldn't want a detail like that to be forgotten.

scientific study

This has got to be the best over all study of the true weight savings for a 650L, no doubt. Quite a few people have put some time and effort into this. Finally, real data that will put the issue to rest. "How light can a 650L get before it's no longer a 650L? " ... The world will finally know.

One , two , Three..... Three hundred pounds +or - a few is my guess.

Good work guys.

Motor is too heavy to lift out of the frame. MCMA Steve says it weighs 107 lbs, I believe him.









Thanks,

BP

Edit: The gist of this seems to be choosing parts carefully and / or leaving things off. Not much to actually spend on for weight savings by itself except the battery.

Well... uh, I uh... hmm er uh... No problems here folks... nothing to see
I do have a problem, no questions about it! Ask the wife, she'll back me up
I just dont care much about the weight anymore. I traded one problem for another
Let's see... I think I am due to sell platelets again and I can sell another dose of bone marrow next week. I might scratch together enough to buy something!

Install a kicker and ditch the starter! and... trade out the L's flywheel for an XR600R flywheel. Serious weight savings You could use a much smaller battery also.

Have you figured out how much weight you can shave off the rider? Not nearly as fun a project but the cost per pound is much cheaper.
