I don't see putting a Rally on a diet. I did the Continental Divide Ride at 240 lbs. The Rally made it clear I was to big for it, both power and suspension. So during the next year I got custom suspension made F&R and went on a diet loosing 60 lbs. Now riding at 180Lbs is a tremendous difference. Next year I hope to be at 175, mostly for the Rally but also for Track Days.
