Ditch the headlight, odometer and put a YZ number plate. Get a titanium/aluminum exhaust. Lose the rear fender with light for a YZ fender. Lose the radiator reservoir. And lastly, fill your tires with helium...SC

The kickstand, one of the rimlocks on the rear wheel and everything else clark4131 said. I am still looking for a light weight battery for mine.

Can I buy the headlight from you? Busted mine, and I ride the North Idaho woods after dark. Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh My!!! Besides, I'm scared of the dark.....

Strip it no lights, stands, or excess plastic. Re-gear for track. And YZ time it.

Suspension is also just as important as weight. She is to soft stock.

I just got a new YZ and it's amazing how simple yet effective it is.
