Would it matter much if another (single) can is used?
It would be great if I can save 10kg in the bike. I don't weight it yet but I save a lot also in the rear light/mudguard and front wheel with single brake.
Also I think this 208 kg are with the full tank (23 litres).
No idea with another can but the Akra works really nice... and has a fantastic music!
Ridind the bike is completely different. I come from a Super Ten 1200 and the firsts days with te 660 I was worried, I ride full throtle all the time!
Now the bike is really fun, the revs come up really quick.
Off the road builds also a big bore kit 686, 714 or 727 ccm!!... I am tempted...
