Aftermarket chains can be lighter. different sprockets can be lighter. Shocks can be lighter and make for better handling. Run less gas from the get go (if you are staying pretty close to your truck and not venturing too far off). Could take some of the plastics off. Everything else, ask BAXTER. I think he probably has the lightest one on here.

I removed the head light and it was too ugly so I put it back on. I cut all the front and side plastics off mine. There is a lot of after market parts you can buy to drop weight but it gets expensive fast.

Depends on how mechanically minded you are. Not meant to be an insult but I have questions by pm and I explain and they reply "wheres that located".

Ok 20 is stupid and causes a "God" like complex.
I took some weight of by doing away with things I didn't use. I did away with the rear light and the brake switchers,did away with the junk on the bars.

I posted this for 2 reasons , 1 I am getting old and my memory aint what it use to be.
2 . Makes it easy.

I did a few things to make the 700xx lighter and I will always try ! :D

Mine is probably one of the lighter xx's but that's because I don't do the kind of riding most of you guys do so that allowed me to ditch a lot of extra plastic and brackets and switch to light wheels and not worry about denting them. Just figure out what kind of riding you're going to do and what you need to do that kind of riding and ditch everything else. Baxter has done a lot of research on this so I would listen to any advice he has.

I am pretty sure he was joking around Dan....hence his other statement on being old LOL. I think everyone got a kick out of the 20 questions.
