Any my earlier comment about Ohlins/Beringer was in jest, just poking fun, nothing negative meant.
No offense taken! We've looked into and discussed in depth the bracing there, with some good friends of ours, specifically in BSB. We are not sure it is best suited for our tracks here presently. We may try it, but frames are not cheap for this bike!

We have something special coming for 2019 and we expect to be well into the 370s.
Holy Hell that is crazy light. I couldn't imagine how light and easy it would be to flick that thing into corners.

It's definitely getting there! We've been spoiled by the R1, which is very light. Our R1 was down to 360lbs, but of course had a lot of titanium bolts, carbon wheels, etc.

Sounds like it's not a bad way to pick up some decent power once you've plateaued with bolt ons..
Is there a catch?

When in doubt... send it!

It can make the bike more prone to spinning and it has a reduced wattage output, so you have to be careful with running auxiliary components that rely on the bike's charging system. It will also change the engine braking characteristics a bit.

peterd10r has got his 4th gen street bike with abs, lights, and mirrors down to 365lbs. Definitely doable

Here is the link, a lot of pages but good info. He weighs everything and posts the before and after results.

Awesome build.

Did the Arrow exhaust come with the invidual O2 bungs?

And what does the brake reservoir on the left handle bar go to?

I was at Barber with STT 2 weeks before GNF and saw this bike live in person! Gorgeous! Even took a couple pics!

What times were you running at Barber if you don't mind me asking?

That's for the thumb or hand brake. We switched from an IMA TBS to a hand brake.

Nothing too crazy, we've not gotten below 1:31 on it yet. There are for sure some rider limitations there. We'd love to have a guy like Mat Scholtz do some laps on it, maybe the stars will align on that some time. We feel we will make a big step with the bike for 2019, we've been really deep into our season's data and chassis software with our downtime.
