Diet for my 1190

Am looking to bring my Adventure to under 200 kgs and raise the ground clearance a bit at the same time in order to make it more serious off-road capable but keeping traveling work horse properties.
As I'm not the expert in this field I'm am directing to you more knowledgeable fellow off-roaders and travellers for some interesting advice and ideas
I guess by upgrading suspension and rims I'll shed most weight?
Don't hold back!

I would also suggest to replace the standard exhaust, remove the center stand and replace the battery with a li-on battery. Lighter is normally not cheaper :-)
Good luck!

Ordered the short Wings exhaust this week. How much lighter you reckon the lithium battery is? I know some good forks could cost a bit but what else do you work for?

Diet

Check your BMI
It's cheaper to loose your own weight but it's more fun to farkle.

I had replaced OE exhaust with Wings short exhaust weight saving =4kgs
Replaced OE battery with P3 Litiuhm ion battery from KTM twins usa Weight saving of another =4kgs
Total of 8 kgs i could reduce
Centre stand can reduce by another=1.5kg
2k chain sprocket + Disc brakes + CarbonFibre wheels in total can REDuce a maximum of 6kgs (very expensive bits)
can pull down to a total of 8+6= 14kgs
228kgs wet weight-14kgs=214kgs

Going minimalist on your camping setup is the easiest way to reduce large amounts of weight on any bike.

If your setup involves a 5.3lb (2.4kg) Kermit chair, the latest in lightweight battery technology isn't going to save you.
