Dropping some bike weight
What kind of weight can you reasonably expect to drop off a gen1? I know the headers are titanium, so I'd leave those alone. But I'm thinking that replacing the can, and removing the rear pegs, rad fan, horn, bar ends, brackets, and installing a light weight battery would amount to around 20 lbs or so. Am I forgetting anything else?
Getting it down to around 410 lbs wet would be dynamite on the track! I'm wondering what the racers have done to reduce some weight of the bike, without spending big money on such items as rims.
Btw, I have no body weight to drop, for I'm a competitive runner and triathlete.
