With 10 gallons that would be 400-500 miles!

Can't wait to see video of these bikes in action!
I doubt there will be any taking it easy with these bikes I guess the range will be 350 miles or so under spirited riding

With the Safari front tank and the Rally Raid Rear tank we can all approximately 10 US gallons of gas This will come in handy in the long stretches in Baja, Canada and through the Alaskan wilderness.
That's why I requested the DRY weight. It's absolute.
I've seen/held the Safari tank (importer is 5 miles from me.) Nice but pricey! Imagine a "light-weight" dirt bike with the 800cc mill....

It's gonna take more than a gas tank to make it "light weight". However I also feel that the path is the lose a few pounds here and a few pounds there. I'd like to drop 50 ideally. I'm too busy to figure it out myself and had big hopes for the thread that discussed this.

I shaved 23lbs since I bought mine in 2011, but it was all beer gut weight. Is your 45lb figure all bike weight or is some of it personal, like mine?

Can you specify the stock and replacement part weights? 45 pounds is pretty serious, looks like you still have all or most of the stuff still on the bike.

Also waiting for your opinion on suspension upgrades. I think you did full replacement on one and another with carts and springs?

I'm down 10-15lbs on mine. Makes a difference already. Looking forward to more weight reduction for this summer's riding season.

Hopefully we can get some juicy close-ups when ICON have finished with them

I would give my left nut to 'Rally' that awesome rig!!

Any issues resting the bike on the skid plate like that (given there is no frame there to attach the plate to) ? I have heard/read that this is a no-no

It is up on the box so we can do a QUICK TWO wheel tire change
if you look we have bobbins in the back of the swing arm
so we can use a PADOCK stand
but to answer you question:

NO issue at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

who every said there is a issue is mistaken.

I noticed you do not have any engine protection other than the skid plate. Did you find this unnecessary through R&D?

the guards get in the way when you extend you leg out to corner.
I am waiting for a set of carbon fiber case guards and if they show up we will run them.
