Weight

Does any one know what piece is heavier, the complete rear seat or the rear cowl. Thinking about replacing the rear seat with the cowl, but if it is heavier than the stock seat, then I will keep it there.

Lets be real, the fastest cheapest mod is to loose 20 pounds off your a*s.

Man no offense but are you really serious?? I guess I don't see on a bike with this much power that is this light why it matters if you save 1 pound or whatever by removing the rear seat. I'd go for whichever you think looks better. Fyi though, no passengers if you don't have a rear seat

Absolutely mann. Any weight shaving is positive for me, esp. if the seat weighs 3 lbs and the cowl weighs 10 0unces.

The seat cowl is a just a plastic shell with a thin aluminum support structure behind it.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
