that mostly depends on what you want from your bike and what you've already done

you can pull and bunch of stuff off but what do you need
gut the pipe
head light
tail light
overflow tank
battery
starter
drill out half of the seat foam from the bottom also makes seat softer
ditch the computer and sending unit
lose the tupperware guards skid plate disc guard
alloy spocket
non o-ring chain weighs less and less drag
cut up air box
emissions removal
take off the right number plate and cut down the left one.
cut out all extra wires
titanium bolt kit
titanium rear spring

these are a few things you can do , most that I would not. but hey it's your bike:thumbsup: :smirk: more power to ya

Hey Guys

Thanks for the ideas on taking some weight off my machine.

dugabrams: I would love to have a YZ, but I am not a good enough rider yet. I have been out of the game for a few years and thought I should start out on something a bit tamer. Plus most of the riding I tend to do is techical trails and long, steep hill climbs so I need something geared more like a tractor. Eventually I would like to get a YZ for a track bike.

Thanks again everyone.
