So where's the extra 20 lbs. on the '12?

We know the '12 14R weighs 17 lbs. more than the '11.....584 vs. 567 wet, according to the reviews. We also know the wheels are 3 lbs. lighter, so the rest of the bike gained 20 lbs. The '12 mufflers are huge but I can't imagine they are 20 lbs. heavier than the previous big mufflers. The frame has been stiffened and we now have TC, but is their much additional weight there?

Anyone?

Mufflers are the bulk of it. Also the radiator is larger and there is an additional fan for a total of two. Maybe a little weight in the frame, but I can't see that adding up to much. Also the addition of the slipper style clutch and traction control. All that easily adds up to 17 pounds.
