Here is a breakdown of some of the greatest weight savings on my bike. There are further ways to reduce the weight of the bike such as race fairings and removing lights for track preparation. This is something I do not wish to embark on at this stage.
Anyway, here is my list so far.
|Titanium Spring (Replaces Ohlins spring)||360.0g|
|Front wheel Titanium Spindle||142.6g|
|Rear wheel Titanium Spindle||173.5g|
|Swingarm Titanium Spindle||123.0g|
The important thing to remember is most of the large weight saving are in the unsprung weight which improves the handling characteristics of the blade.
The new CBR1000RR boasts a 1kg weigh saving which was saved purely by just replacing the battery. I hope to source a CBR1000RR subframe to further reduce the weight of the bike.
