I weighed my 08 fz1

Been wondering what my bike weighed since Iíve been trying to get it as light as possible. So completely wet obviously with 1/2 tank of gas it weighed in at 445lbs. Not too shabby from the 485 wet from the factory.

Yes it is. I went with the full yoshi on mine. The lithium battery was about 10lbs lighter or close to it.

That's very good.

For reference my 2014 Super Duke with (empty) top case, full of gas and ready to ride, is right at 450lb.

I also always search for lowest weight tires. Got a thread going to keep up with what tire and wheel weights are.

45mph rolls, or from dig on streets, or at the drag strip. Not so much as barbers Motorsports park or anything like that.
