Anyone Remove/Replace the front cowling?

I was wondering if anyone has tried to really lighten up the strom by removing and or replacing the front faring/cowling.

That stuff has to weigh a ton. I know I could get 50 pounds off of this bike in no time.

I won't do this again like I did to my GS and then they came out with the HP2.

Anyway, Is anyone really trying to "rally" a V-Strom?

Yes, several have tried. Here's a recent post on adv rider about someone converting the Strom to a Motard: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=295558

The plastics really aren't all that heavy. Had'em off the other day to do the plugs and airfilter.
