Bike shown with rear luggage rack and side pannier racks removed, about 1 gallon of fuel was 425 lbs. Most of the weight removed was off the front end, a good place to remove it. We figured we lost about 30-40 lbs overall from when we started.

I have not done any other testing on the new bikes and I don't see this working with the ABS bikes very easily, and I don't recommend ABS for off road use anyways.

Lots to work through yet for newer bikes as this was build on a 2009.
