This is probably no news to most of you guys. But I finally found time to get my "s" down to my buddies garage for a weigh in. Final total....314 pounds with about 3/4 tank of fuel. ...OMG!!! I have not really removed too much from the bike other than the rear foot pegs, rubber peg inserts, and reflectors. I did add a skid plate and bark busters. I guess I was reluctant to actually weigh the beast. I new it was heavy...but my four wheeler is only 50 lbs more than that. Man I wish someone would come out with a dualsport that was light. I really like this bike...But I have a whole winter to think about what to do in the spring... I fear I may be sacrificing the street ability of the drz for a bike that does not feel like a tank offroad. I need to find someone with an "E" for a compare. I know it will be lighter.
