wet weight comparison 05' zx10r & k5?

hi guys,

i remember seeing figures that the dry weight 05 10r is 4kg heavier than the k5 but the wet weight showing the 10r is 4kg lighter than the k5, anyone have proof of this info on an article/shootout?

thanks,

I subscribe to at least 4 mags and buy many others...never seen a "true" dry weight test for the K5 being lighter than a 10(other what the manufacter claims)....the 04 or 05 is the lightest 1000cc jap bike... and there have been tests of the 04 even being lighter than a 750Gix...if you have a test contrary...post up...don't believe every test I seen as the populous for weight of an 04/05 all being wrong.

that's cool to take a weight like that....problem is some tank capacities vary…that’s why I like it when the Mags take a “true” test…not like the manufactures that take oil, coolant, battery and or battery acid out etc…and say this is the “dry weight”…..just bullshit…what does the bike weigh with no gas compared to others?…and I can tell you that was one of the main reason I bought my bike at the time….1000cc power with weight close to most 600cc bikes….love it!.

ruthless aren't there weight rules for the most of the classes??
if this is the case then its pretty easy to figure out what an 04,5 10 weighs full of ALL fluids and since yours contained 2gal at the time we only need add the weight for yet another 2.5gal of fuel.......mmmmmmmm say 17lbs +-1lb is damn close.

that's extremly light though for 2 gallons of fuel..so


one thing I must say though...the factory weights are only an indicator as most will replace those heavy stock pipes built for emmisions....that is the true gain/reduction in weight...they all are boat loads of weight...the 10 though felt light even with it's big heavy stock can....so...........

In 2004 for 1000SS there was a 600lb minimum, but in 2005 they changed it to unlimited weight.

Easy all you have to do is subtract for the weight of the fuel you know how much each holds then will give you the proper weight. 6.1 pounds per gallon is close
