I'm a proud new owner of a 2002 MXC 400. My only complaint so far is the weight - I have trouble loading it onto my high truck bed. (I always have to bother someone else to help me) Aside from going to the gym myself, I'm looking at ways of reducing the weight of my bike. Keeping the tank as empty as possible when loading really helps. (A full 3.X gallon tank is HEAVY) I was also looking at changing to an EXC tank and shrouds. (Im not too fond of the MXC tank anyway ) This may be heresy, but I was actually *gasp* thinking of getting rid of the kickstarter. It's something, I guess Any other ideas? I'm sure someone somewhere is doing the same sorts of things with their MXC. Any shared experience would be helpful.
