I scored a set of Longacre Competition digital scales on eBay a couple years ago. Obviously there are some factors to discuss on weight but your right, fuel is the biggest one overall. I agree with the comment about the really bad feeling of the engine running out or stumbling mid corner or anywhere for that matter. Since I can typically do a 20 minute session on 1 gallon I run with 2 gallons in the tank. That way it always feels the same and I'm as light as possible but never real close to starving for fuel. The yellow low fuel light comes on with about a gallon in the tank, so that's my back up....if i forget to refuel each session then the yellow light is staring at me when crank up for the next session. so how much does my 2014 675R weigh? 2 gallons of fuel in the tank, Sharkskins tail with stock seat (all other bodywork is OEM), Full Akrapovic titanium exhaust, Ohlins top mount steering stabilizer, 520 chain and sprockets, Woodcraft rear sets, Shoria battery, delete passenger pegs, delete mirrors, delete chain guard, delete countershaft sprocket cover, delete turn signals, add GB racing case covers, add radiator guard add Triumph frame sliders. 378lbs
Shoei X-12, Sidi boots, Syed 1-piece w/full armor, Held gloves = 23lbs
