Not sure how much the FZ 09 batteries weigh, but the Li Ion batteries are amazing for power to weight ratio.Possible to get under 400 lbs wet ? Be interesting to try..........
Ti exhaust = -8 lbs ?
Li Ion battery = -4 lbs ?
Reflectors = -.1 lbs
Rear fender = -.2 lbs ?
Passenger pegs = -1 lb ?
How much did that battery run you? I'm interested in the extra storage space!Update: OEM battery: 7 Lbs
Inga Lithium Battery # 7002 ( YTX 7 equiv ) 1.25 Lbs
..............................# 7004 ( YB 14 equiv ) 2 Lbs

Yes same time. I did a quick estimate adjustment, today I'm going to work on getting it perfect. I just wanted to make sure my tire pressure was reasonable. I had a long discussion with a friend about tire pressures, he uses 42 on his R6 and I couldn't convince him that he's being more than a little crazy. And I quote "it says 42 on the bike, so that's what I use" he's gone down twice once because the bike slid out from under him at a low speed and the 2nd because he lost grip in the front under hard braking. Anyways, I had great grip yesterday, the suspension stayed in control when there were bumps in corners. But when I was going slower speeds it felt like it wasn't sure which way to go...just odd. I may just be getting used to the combination of fork springs, rear shock, new seat, and lower pressure. Pretty much handles completely different than it did in early December.Zloikish, odd how? And you made suspension changes the same time as you lowered the PSI, right?
Have you checked your front and rear sag with you on the bike?
Okay awesome, I felt like I may be too low since the tire gives a lot more than I'm used to when I sit on it.30 on both.
28 in cold weather.
