My opinion is that they are not very heavy. I'm at 405lb, drop the defender pipe for cycle shack m pipes that i have and I'm sub 390. A handful of bikes in amra are sub 400 with stock frames.

If I remove the stock tank I’m right around the same weight as well. Remove the defender and I’d be sub 400 too. Soon...

Right.....

A metric or Buell front end conversion, a metric or Buell rear wheel, a cheap aluminum tank with cheap fiber shell and you won’t even be close to stock weight.
