I know this is a car forum, but with sportbikes every bit of weight loss can make a difference. Some folks get so caught in shaving a few grams here and there with titanium bolts, lightweight (but fragile) chaindrives, etc. But what a lot of people seem to forget is if you shed a few pounds yourself that can make an even bigger difference.

But yeah, if you're not racing the thing and still want to daily drive it, ditch the spare tire and accessories and get a lighter wheel/tire combo. Aftermarket exhaust will be a hair lighter as well.
