My 08's weight.

I'm sure this has been covered somewhere else, but I figured it couldn't hurt to post it up. My work has car scales for corner-balancing car suspension, so I threw my bike on the scales (scale under each tire and under the kickstand). Full of fluids and about a half tank of gas she weighed in at 424lbs. Only mods are listed in my signature. Tipped the scales at about 590 with me on it .

Hope this helps somebody in some way, now I just gotta get it dyno'd so I can start bragging about my power/weight ratio

Getting down there, you're looking at around 440 with a full tank of gas then. Seems an aftermarket exhaust is netting the 08's around a 20 pound loss.

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities--whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.

Yeah sounds about right. I'm curious where the other generations stack up in weight. The stock 08 exhaust is entirely too heavy, but it's a good easy place to shave weight.
