Whoa..............I would like to weigh MYSELF on those scales. I could quit my diet then!!!!!! Motorcyclist has the 14 @ 563 wet..............that's a 58lb difference. I don't think a 14 could weigh 505lbs even with aftermarket wheels...........

Of course their weight was full of fuel and yours was with 2 gallons..............I guess that's what............24lbs or so difference? Let's say 25........that puts you at 530 or so full of fuel...............add another 25 or so lbs back on for the stock exhaust............555lbs.............and a few lbs of "stuff" possibly removed ( rear fender, mirrors, etc........) and you would be right there at that 560lb mark stock and full of fuel.................... Makes sense to me!

If I were you I would be getting some nice light wheels! Wow would that make a difference too.............LOT"S of weight to be lost on the 14 it looks like. I wonder how much weight swft took off his 12R when he was done with it? He went all out...................

Well, the brocks system drops about 25 lbs...I think that puts the bike around 530?

Stock exhaust is 37 lbs!



Wow........with some wheels and a light fuel load you guys could be under 500 lbs no sweat........ I never really sat down and did any math till just now.......that makes for one deadly cruise missle right there...................

I wanted to see a 14 run there. I havent seen too many yet. I bet that lees can get rolling pretty fast hes no slouch on two wheels or four. Also he always knows something that no one realizes or picks up, I bet he could go as fast as brocks first weekend out.
Aftermarket wheels woulod be the shit too, id like a pair. If I could find some for the twelve, Id sell a couple things and make way for some more mph.
I plan on breaking 200 in the spring if I have to chop off a leg to lose weight.....I guess ill have to get a airshifter then.
