Various Bike Weights

Recommended Posts

2002 XR4 w/Trick Dual Sport & set up for trails 272 lbs

2002 YZ250f set up for trial riding 238 lbs

2001 XR250 w/Trick Dual Sport & set up for trails 254 lbs

2001 KTM520EXC Dual Sport & set up for trials 280 lbs

all my "KTM" friends have been telling me how much lighter the KTM's are so I had to see for myself....

All were weighed on a certified/callibrated shipping scale

The "extra" weight on the XR4 comes from oil, about a gallon of gas, the skid pan, the bark busters, etc.

The Trick Dual Sport Kit is probably the lightest DS kit available.

The weights only look heavy because of the optomistic "dry" weights provided by the mfgs.

The XRs are only 14 lbs over listed dry weights so I wouldn't call them optimistic.

A gallon of gas and half gallon of oil are about 9-10lbs so I have no doubt that a skid plate, bark busters and a dual sport kit weigh 4lbs.

What did you add to the YZ250F to make it trail ready?

I've done nothing but add weight to my XR400. DS kit, skid plate, better handguards, shark fin, fork/disc protector.

The weight savings have been done by scraping the fenders and side panels on rocks.

I bought it used from a fellow TTR:

He really put alot into it before I got it, but the main weight additions are:

Skid pan

Cyrca Bark Busters

Billet rear disk protector

Acerbis 15 gallon gas tank (not really, but it is a ball buster!)

Other stuff:

Hinson clutch basket

Rekluse auto clutch

Power Now

Vortex ignition

The motor is currently at Thumper Racing for a complete work over. It includes a 280 kit, Kibblewhite valves and springs, WR transmission, Eline stator, the latest upgrade of the Rekluse clutch. The KW valves have been on back order for nearly a month, but they expect to get them next week. FYI, I have it licensed and am working towards making the lightest, high performance dual sport bike(for CA) that's possible.
