    Wouldn't the type of oil used to cook the fush n chups have some bearing on the weight too
    thus the balance of the bike one would imagine.

    thats what i was thinkin...

    if you run 50 weight you could drop it to 40 weight and save yourself 10 weights... i can't believe someone hasnt thought of this form of weight saving before
    probly what they do in baja


    you know it makes sense

    Don't want to rain on you guys parade, but you seam to be over complicating the issue of the weight. It's really just a matter of adding more air to the tyres to compensate. Same as a balloon, the more air the lighter it becomes.

    No, no need to thank me, you guys just need to think outside the box sometimes, don't let yourselves get fenced in, look for alternatives, sometimes the easiest answer is staring you in the face.:D

    You could fit valves to the swing arm and frame and inflate them for more weight loss, maybe use helium for that full floater effect so it will handle as good as a Suzuki?

    You may be on to something actually........... Fill your frame and tubes with helium (and yourself for that extra weight loss, plus you get a cool voice for down the pub afterwards)

    its growing on me digga .... i wanted a bit more but i think the stock head pipe is holding it back a hp or 2 ..... its ok but i think when i ride it i'll be a bit more impressed
