Oops….it begins in anger

Recommended Posts

Well after all this so far I get why it weights over 200kg……it won’t for long! 
rally tower should arrive tomorrow hopefully a whole heap of titanium bolts should too. RTech plastics after (admittedly heavier but will weigh to see), titanium exhaust, HAAN wheels also en route then let’s see what happens - fun init!

Neat, what is your targeted weight reduction?

This is a bit of an extreme case, but Roland Sands managed a 60 lb weight reduction and the bike scaled at 422 lbs when done. A Naked bike description doesn't really apply to this one, more like buck naked!

I'm often tempted to follow his footsteps... it's a bit ugly but in a good way!

 

@RMMark: Nice stuff, looking forward to the next steps!

No real target, just making the changes/upgrades I wanted to make anyway and hoping for the best, it's more about simplifying it all down a bit and making things easier to get to/clean. That said I do hope to see some decent weight loss.

Nice one!

Got mine down to 205 kg with a full tank.

This is what I did to reduce the weight.

 

- removed abs systen

- removed one caliper and disk

- removed passenger pegs

- removed canister

- removed mirrors

- removed bar weights

- changed the exhaust and exhaust hanger

- tail tidy

- high fender

- R tech open handguards instead of BB

 

I will build my own rally tower this winter, swap the wheels for excel rims, and remove the crash bars.

 

Goal is to get it down to around 190kg's.

Evap now removed, a lot heavier than I thought (68.5g). This is every part of the system and I used a deletion plug to stop the error codes. 
will tidy up the overflow pipe later

Did you weigh in before?

 

Don't what the real world wet weight is of a stock t7

Nope I did not, but I'm guessing it's more than the 205 kg's the claim.

Have you any progress to share? It is fun. I always end up doing this to my bikes. 

 

 

Cheers, Budo

No real progress to weight, but now the rally tower, RTech plastics, Haan wheels (140 rear) are all installed bud
