I suppose you got to keep lights and mirrors and stand on it for it to seem really impressive weight for a road bike but god that would eat me up know just how much them bits weigh.
Id have to tinker with them.

Could loose another 2.2-3.42lbs

That is incredible considering the wsbk minimum weight. Very very impressed sir.

UK the mirrors are a sore point for sure!now I can replace them with Carbon fiber from magical Racing Japan $400 ish for both but here's the kicker!I don't no their weight and then I must fit front indicator light as the mirrors have no led,s in them!now the rear stand and mount bracket will probably way close to 300grams-500grams and when I'm out for a ride what's my option when I stop and talk some crap with other riders!Im sure you could make up a mount bracket and stand with your abilities!I have a solution ukzx10r!I will either send you a fully tanned Kangaroo leather full body or send you a live Joey so it cost me less in freight!they grow very quickly and kids luv them!I can also purchase a/m T6 7075 alloy rear stand and get it welded but can you make that 2xM10 mount bracket!I already have the Titanium pivot bolt!2xM10~30mm Titanium bracket mount bolts!M6 Titanium bolt and even the M3 or M2 switch housing Titanium bolts!you have 1 on your gen4 tell me a price mate if you can with a pm!Im also sure I have many spare Titanium bolts that could make this a little bit more worth thinking about
Cheers
Pete

Firstly i have removed my side stand switch and fitted this ebay item:322126832045 to save weight.
Secondly im looking into a lighter stand. Some already have alloy bases.
I do have some 7075 alloy at work so can make something up if neccesary.
Just been playing alot with my r1 so havnt done much in the zx10r recently. I will look soon

Removing bar end weights and replacing with cf tubes

Ok I was considering replacing my oem clip ons for a carbon fiber tube and a/m Aluminium for clamp!now my concern was ditching the Sato bar end weights and the shitty handlebar vibration!I was told that the Carbon fiber tubes would absorb the handlebar vibration!well I will let you no after a spin yesterday that the difference between the Sato ends and cf tubes is remarkable!there is basically no vibration or hum using the Carbon fiber tubes!If they were shit I would of ripped them off!yes I no it all cost money and some will say a pointless venture!but for me nothing is pointless if I drop weight and gain something along the way and its a win win!just thought I would give a little feedback
