    How low can you go..............?

    .............so - today i nipped off to Boogieman's workshop, to put the blue seat on his scale.

    203kg with 10 liters of fuel.

    Pretty happy with that.

    Thanks for the use of your scale Ben.

    I thought you had a Katana Derek not a fat lady?

    You could always lose some more weight by removing the left hand mirror, it's easy to do too!

    That is rather impressive Derek, that would equal about 190 kilos dry weight, well done.

    Alloy fuel tank must be close to the last thing?

    That's impressive considering my GSXR has an 11kg lighter engine and aluminium alloy frame and it was stil 21kg heavier than the Kat'.

    Soo very close to that sub 200 kg target Derek. I would have thought that with all the work you have done to slim down your Baby (the Kat) she would have dropped under the magic 200 kg even with 10 lt of fuel. Perhaps the GSXR tubes, six pot stoppers, exhaust wrap, Ohlins and oil cooler have added a few grams here and there however, the larger rear tyre could be adding the extra few kgs. What does it weigh compared to the 130/80/17 Sport Demon which comes in at 5.445 kg? Foam grips will shave another 100 grams off.

    Cheers.
