What is the actual weight of my bike?

This may seem like a newbish question but I have seen reports and specs listed all over the internet ranging from 436 lbs all the way to 500+ lbs. I realize I have to account for my rack and crash bars, but throwing that aside, what is the ACTUAL weight of the ktm adventure? Wet/dry?

Most truck scales are on even when closed. Take a run to your local weigh station.

You can say that again, But when they are upright they are the best in the land. No 690 would do.

You can get a PDF copy of your owner's manual at:

http://www.ktm950.info/how/owners_ma...s_manuals.html

You can get them at the official KTM site too, but the other one is easier.

Take your worst estimate and add 50 lbs. Seriously. I had my bike trimmed of all excess weight (single exhaust, single front brake rotor, Talon hub, no crash bars, no rear racks, no luggage rack, etc.) for a big rally and it still weighed in at over 450lbs with only 2 gallons of fuel. They are big bastards.
