RC30, you are doing a wonderful job of listing all your modifications! :lol:

There is more weight to be lost though, Titanium axles, swing arm pivot bolt and fasteners through out the bike can shave off a few more grams.

Lighter seat foam, cover, Titanium sprockets and chain. Also there has to be a lighter rear shock with a titanium shock spring.

Ciao rebelventurer, the titanium shock spring is a good idea but........I have a best idea, which you will see later...........:confused:.........:lol:

......I see you getting to 290lbs!.

Mmmhhhhh.......I hope many lbs lower............:confused:

RC30, here are some links, let us know what you think!

Titanium bolt kits.... www.mettec.com they will custom make bolts, and axles, also.

Super light and strong sprockets and chains.... www.SidewinderSprockets.com

Billet throttle assembly.... www.TERRYCABLE.com

brake stuff..... www.ebcbrakes.com

Idea for rear shock, On one of my sons pit bikes we used a Fox racing air shock, what was remarkable was the fact that it only weighed 1.1 lbs I dont know if they have larger model available, but I know they can be valved for many different setups, and are highly adjustable:thumbsup: check them out at.... http://www.foxracingshox.com/fox_moto/moto_index.htm

Heres a 650 that weighs 275, but given the same attention you are giving yours it would weigh 250lbs or less... http://www.build-stuff.com/CRF650.htm

I hope you can get down below 290 maybe even 275, good luck, once again great job of documentation! :lol: ciao
