1) Replace beefy skid plate with stock glide plate.
2) Remove kickstand.
3) Replace headlight with number plate and remove odometer.
4) Possibly replace rear fender with a YZ fenter to loose the taillight.
Anyother suggestions (and I am NOT willing to purchase anything titanium or carbon fiber $$$)
By the way, how will the number plate fit? Will I need to make any mods to get it to fit? Thanks, Doug

This may be fairly obvious, but something I didnt think about for quite a while and when I finally done it, it saved me about 20 pounds.
Drain all the gas out.
Except for enough to make a few laps!

sometimes good value can be
carbon airbox = more power less weight
aftermarket exhaust = more power less weight

If there are NO rocks, you could probably lose the skid plate altogether. I am assuming you have dumped the kickstand. Also the gas comment is VERY REAL. If you have the IMS tank, put enough in for a 20 minute moto. I have raced against guys who were topping their tanks OFF! Ditto on the glycol reservoir.
P.S. Glycol is European/Australian for anti- freeze .

You should’ve leaned over and said, “Excuse me, where is the first checkpoint?”

Dan, thanks for the tip on the Scotts setup. I was hoping for something easy with the plate.
However, I have some bad news and some GREAT news. The bad news, I will not be riding for quite a while. The GREAT news, it is because we have just had our first child last week. A healthy little baby girl. So I will be devoting all my free time for a while to enjoying my brand new hobby...raising a baby daughter. All I need now is some sleep

I've got two daughters and believe me, it's the greatest thing in your life!

Congratulations, here's something I've learned from raising my two boys (11&14). The first year you'll teach them how to walk and talk. The next seventeen, you'll be telling them to shut up and sit down
Enjoy, every minute My oldest is in high school and will be driving soon, but it seems like yesterday, when I was changing his diapers.
