Anyone try to save weight on the DL?
I'm temped to rip off the front fairing to see that that does. Will it even look good?
I took off the rear luggage rack, and that saved a good 10 pounds! (lighter one will be reattached soon.)

Sometimes I think it would be easier and cheaper to lose a few pounds rather than strip the bike down or spend money on lightweight components. I weigh 220lbs and figure if I could shed about 30lbs my strom would fly. :lol: Dan

Haha that's a good point. A lot of motorcyclists are concerned with weight savings, but very few of us are built like horse jockeys :lol: .

I did take my helmet lock off, doesn't work well with my Nolan. That must have saved 6 oz's, heavy little sucker. :D

Did it though to get a bit better access to my shock for adjustments.
