You might ask JDS or the_castle. They are building or have built very light bikes.

You can either spend thousands on lighter parts or get rid of excess body weight (if you have it). Bike doesn't know the diff. All it knows is the gross weight is lighter. Lay off the cheetos and chips.

Carbon v plastic weight, providing it's PROPER carbon as in autoclaved/pre pregnated (as the MV stuff) work roughly on a 250 gramme saving for each MAJOR part like, top fairing, side fairing etc, not small bits like the key guard.

So a complete fairing (4 parts) would save close to 1kg, plus 500 grammes for airtubes, 500 for the seat unit, and 500 for the airbox, thats 2.5kg in total (and thats maybe on the generous side) and the maths will say 2.5kg= £3500

MV's all gone now, still have a soft spot for MV's, waiting for MV to tick all my boxes again.
Previously (and about 40 others)748SP, S4, S4R, 98R1, 2000 F4, F41000S, F41000R, 08R1, 09R1, S1000RR, RSV4 Factory aPRC in Garage now

That's an expensive way to remove 2.5Kg!!!

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!
