Hi Knapdog.

And you can lose another couple of pound by removing the ballast plate on the opposite side of the bike !!

Every little helps ...

What's that, Chay?

There's a counterweight to the exhaust ( erm ... not nearly so heavy) situated at the left footpeg.

I'm sure instructions on how to remove it are on this site but I can't remember how the article was described.

I'll have a hunt and if I can't find it again I'll revisit what I did and let you know - prob be the weekend though.

I fitted a Beowulf end can and am very happy with it.
