Jenny Craig for the 700xx

Has anyone done a weight saving exercise on their 700xx? I mean what are some of the heavier parts that can be replaced to save weight. Wheels? Tires? etc. Do we know the weight of Wayne's desert racer? New to the group here guys/gals. Sold my 450r and am selling my kfx400. Then the 700xx purchase and then the aftermarket bing fest... and then the Universe!!

Sorry got a little carried away!

I've seen carbon fiber drive shafts. I wonder if someone can make axles like that? Lighter A-arms and maybe even cut some weight with the steering stem. All these would most likely have to be custom. Sure would be sweet to see though.

Some ideas for reducing the weight of our 700xx

1. Trimmed plastics (not much weight savings, but every little bit counts.)

2. Tires AND rims... You could save a little bit with lighter tires. Razr perhaps and I believe Hiper rims are lighter as well.

3. Aftermarket a-arms... Hauser?

4. Shocks... stock shocks are heavy.

5. Jenny Craig for the rider... or ride nude.

1. A few ounces

2. The stock tires are about as light as you'll get. Hiper carbon wheels are lighter but very pricey.

3. Aftermarket A-Arms are longer (more mass) and made of steel (stock are aluminum)

4. They'll only be lighter if they have aluminum bodies.

5. Crack works better, You'll get grit in your ass :-(
