Weight of Mona Lisa (F4) vs F3 Ago

I decided to put both bikes on the scales today. I filled both tanks with a gas can at the house. This way the tank on both bikes were 100% full and would be a even comparison. I placed a platform in front of the scale and behind the scale to keep the bikes level while weighing them. The scales that I used go up to 300 lbs and are not bathroom scales. They are a type of heavy duty postal scale. So here is how it came out.

Mona Lisa Ago
190 205 Rear wheel
219 228 Front wheel
409 433 Total

So I still have 9 lbs to go to reach my goal of under 400 lbs street legal. Yes I know I can remove the mirrors and headlight and be there. But that is not how I want to do it. But to have a bike with about 55 more HP than a F3 and come in 24 lbs lighter. Then add in better brakes and suspension. Mona Lisa is a special bike. I do have about 3 more items that I want to add to Mona to make her lighter over the next year. That might only get me down about 4 lbs but we will see. At our next MV gathering I would like for some people to also enjoy her. But I will be honest, my heart will be racing and I will be nerves. She is becoming irreplaceable.

you need to find a different scale, one that will weigh the bike all at one time

So if I look at the dry weight of the Ago from the manual. 394.6. Add in the weight of the ethanol-free gas at 6.217 lbs per gallon. 4.49 gallon tank is 27.914 lbs. The two of these comes to 422.51 lbs. My full weight was 433 lbs. This leaves 10.485 lbs difference.

Now take my F4. Dry is 423.3, 5.54 gallon tank at the 6.217 lbs per gallon. This is 457.7 now add in the 10.48 lbs difference that the F3 showed. Wet weight on the stock F4 should be about 468.18 lbs. This means I have lost 59.18 lbs from my F4. Don't ask how much each lb cost. Most likely more than I would like to know.
esq'z me and esq'z me like this.
