Not sure if your trying to be rude or not. 1 I do train at the gym-follow a strict meal plan 2 I put in a lot of seat time as well I can only train so much. I do have a full time job any riding is just a hobby. 3 I have 25 years in racing of some sort. 4 we can all weigh the facts and the $ to lose pounds isn't worth it to most. 5 I'm not buying a Ktm or kx. I'm a Yamaha guy and always will be. I like the design of the motor and head I'm curious what kinda power one can pull out of it. When a rider has to handle a heavy machine it will wear him down faster. Same goes for to much hp. So the way I see it, I can build this 16 the way I like it and get a few years of use out of it. Drop rotational mass and excessive weight seems like a good idea. It is kinda a fundamental of any racing. It's not a dreamer thread. I'm a authorized dealer for race tech titanium and parts are easy to obtain for me. I need larger fuel tank for dunes and see you can get a cf one from Italy that weighs less than oem. Cf seat pan with light foam. Rims - cf hubs Twisted engineering bars. Lose the bulky plastics. Right there's a lot of mass that I don't have to try to control around the track and that means less fatigue as a rider. Probably not for everyone but it was a serious thread and I was wondering if people were into that on this site. But thanks for belittling my thread. Well said. Good job.
