Just curious. Anyone know?

Maybe you guys who have shipped motors know?

I think it is about 60 lbs. I remember pulling it out of my frame by myself and thinking it was lighter than I thought.:cry:

The 490 kit with SS valves & springs turned out very well with 12:1 compression ratio. It really runs about the same fuel mileage, pulls slightly less than the stocker down low due to the heavy cam springs and lower compression. absolutely rips through the midrange and top end. Mainly due to the polish & port work done allowed the bike to rip very well. It really likes to lift the front end again. I am very pleased with the results. :cry:
