hello all, i have recently purchased a new xr650r...and although i love the bike and it suits the type of riding i do perfectly, the thing just weighs a ton. bone stock it weighs something like 280 pounds. add on the desert tank and all regular desert protection mods and you're looking at a bike well over 300 pounds.
for a guy who only weighs 140 pounds with gear on, im looking for some modifications i can make to the bike that will take off some excess poundage. it has me wondering if there are any mods at all that will shave off weight, seeing with a desert bike you normally put on some pounds because everything has to be heavy-duty. can anyone out there help me?
