By the way 52.66 MPG with tm 40 147.5 main / needle 2nd clip / header grind / owner built mid and tail pipe / 30 lb lighter than stock DR

have you recuced weight any other way than changing the exhaust? Slick looking bike btw!

When you say owner built mid and tail pipe, how did you make the tail pipe and how does it sound?

and also did you make your own rack I like it but it seems kinda tall

I had . I cut it/ welded it to the stock handles / wanted it tall to place rain coat and regular shoes under the rack while everything else rides on top .

Yes weight reduction in many other places / mirrors/ bars / controls / my own brackets in many places made from aluminum / tail light / air box / horn / side stand / switches / electrical removed / rear fender / lighter bolts in low or no stress areas / front fender / tires . Soon to come , lighter head light , seat ,

Pipe is a DRZ 125 stock can modified by me with my own mid pipe . watch video links for sound . made 37 hp with stock carb with my own built jets / modified stock needle .

Not sure what i make now with the TM but its defintly more . Dyno run soon .

My exaust is 4.5 pounds total from can to the end of the mid pipe / much lighter than OE pipe/can
