    If you are not one of the LITTLE WHIPPER SNAPPERS on here... BIGGEST weight performance gain comes from trying to improve our health.
    When we moved I gained quite a LOT of weight.. In the last 5 weeks I have now lost about 15 lbs by watching the foods I eat again.. Not so much crap, more good meats, veggies, salads, more water, etc.. I am doing this for several reasons of my health.

    However from last summer, gaining a lot of weight, then now beginning to lose it; I can DEFINATELY say you CAN feel the difference on the bike. Just with these 15lbs (lot more to go), I seem to be faster on acceleration and a tiny bit more agile. Besides the health benefits, I am not paying anything for these bike performance mods so far!! Even seems like my MPG went up a tiny bit.


    Current DB Windshield, Immortal Graphix Clear Tank Pad, TapeWorks Reflective Wheel Stripes, Lightning Performance Sliders, T-REX Spools, MotoCentric Sport Saddle, Givi V46, GTI-R HID Projector, Banshee Horn, Speigler Blue Brake lines, Rizoma Engine & Crank Case Guards.

    Desired Givi V35. Puig Touring Windscreen, TechSpec Tank Grips, Rizoma F/E, +1/0 Sprockets, New Clutch/Brake Levers.

    This thread is for proven weights not for everyone to guess what everything weighs
    Before I totaled my FZ6R I did just about every possible modification to it to gain both more power and less weight. So I pretty much know what "Real World" weight is. For example, toss those little reflectors on a Postal scale....they weigh almost nothing.....TBR and everyone else always seems to exaggerate the benefits of a product they want to sell. I removed naked bike because the FZ6R has some issues that need covering..LOL...
    Good job tho..I like the process you are going through.

    I know for sure that the stock rear fender is 5lbs. Not sure at how much my FE weighs, but I'm guessing around 2 lbs. 3 lbs saved.
