ALWAYS interested in lightening projects.
How about some pics to see the differences, in the airboxs in particular. I kinda specialize in induction and am curious.

How far are you going to go? I might have went over the top. Everything carbon, magnesium, and over 100 titanium bolts. Even the FGR forks and the monoblocs are lighter than stock.

I'm looking to do a veltro rep, titanium bolts and carbon for sure, think I'll get the forks intruded and leave as stock, not sure I can wRrant magnesium but will see how the bug catches. I'm hoping to get alkatrax to do the paintwork but it's going to cost 3000englisg so again we will see how the pennies fall

Good luck. With a Weight to HP ratio of about 2.3-2.5 lbs/HP on the F4, every 5 lbs of static weight is a net 2 HP effect. I have taken 43.82 lbs of weight off my track bike from stock, with 4.07 lbs of it being rotating mass. Big difference in feel. I wish I could reduce some of the weight from inside my track leathers, but I'm failing in that area.

43.82? Very respectable amount. If you care to elaborate, I'm willing to listen or read.

The exhaust system was the single greatest reduction. The Ducati 749/999 headlight bucket was the next greatest reduction. Obviously, if you're keeping your bike street-legal, you'll need lights. But the headlight bucket was like a bowling ball hanging of the front of the bike.

Wow, Did you create that sheet yourself? I kinda thought you were talking about an MV but still very interesting. Thanks for posting!
