I am considering cutting off the rear passenger pegs and removing the emissions canister for further weightloss. I've read that people are weary of cutting the pegs because it decreases resale value but here's how i look at it:

1) this bike isn't worth that much anyway so how much will saving the passenger pegs really make you??
2) this bike barely has balls with one rider so it's not even practical for 2 up..
3) im looking for major weightloss by any means possible, it will cook in the streets and be like enough to jam on tough terrain.. even more so than it does now.
diet and exercise

Just wondering about the contradiction there... "barely has balls..." and "it will cook in the streets.."

We had a nice day in the PNW today - I probably shoulda' wheeled my little bike out of the garage for a run through the hills.
