Cool! I suspect there's room for further weight savings. 2-stroke MX bikes aren't really built with weight in mind 'cause they are essentially at the AMA limit in stock form (hence heavy steel exhaust, thick engine cases, overbuilt gearboxes, huge clutches etc as compared to a four stroke). Some of this may carry over to the chassis. I know my '97 YZ had a bunch of steel bits where you'd normally find aluminum on a MX bike - internal wheel bearing spacers, subframe etc.
