If I follow your advidse, Jerseyfirt, I will remove my handguards... naaaahhhh....
If you are riding around or racing and the pick-up truck and tools are not far around (within few miles) you may allow yourself doing it but if you plan on doing big runs, few additional pounds can make the diff.
It is my humble opinion.

BTW - I won't run any other hadguards than flags. I broke a finger in those meateaters, and know a lot of riders who broke their wrists BADLY getting caught in those.

It's been done many times before we did it.

I'm not an enviro my any means, but the idea of a bunch of bikes puking anti-freeze all over the trails doesn't appeal to me.

My best guess is that it weighs at least 50lbs . Seriously though, it probably only weighs a pound or two, but (for me at least) there is no benefit to having it on. As for your environmental concern, after the initial discharge of one or two ounces immidaitely after the removal, no additional fluid is lost. If it was, I would be forced to keep topping off my radiators which i have not had to do once yet.
I can see doing it for a pound or two. The one on my DRZ only weighs a couple of ounces, so that's why I asked. Thx
