I have shed a few lbs off of mine. 8lbs lost just by switching to fox Shox. Another 3-4 by switching out the exhaust to the barker.

I just run way low on oil. Also, I ride in shorts and flip flops. All told, saves me a couple pounds.

If anyone is seriously interested in spending the dough for a chromoly frame let me know. I plan on having one made next winter but might have to order a few to make it happen. Also will be working on a quadtech type 450r vented style carbon fiber hood and may have to buy a few of those as well to make that happen. Chromoly frame on the XX will at least 10lbs. I am shootin for 420 dry, already half way there.

I thought about building a new frame outta chromoly. You going for stock replacement or something differant ?
I was going to build 4 differant chassis's for differant types of racing.
1: XC
2: MX
3: Desert
4: Hybrid. # 4 is alot of $s but it would look sweet ! :D

Stock replacement including the subframe and the botton/rear removable cradle.

Lee, I also got the XR water pump conversion done, need to send you pics. I need to find a bottom hose that has a certain bend to it to get it a little further away from the header.
