Anyone try/thought to lighten the swing and do it safely. Doing this has to retain the basic look of the swing. Modifications allowed. JUST WONDERING........

Full system exhaust will lighten it up a lot. Especially on the rear.

Getting a Li-Fe battery will immediately shed 10 lbs.

However, a long term cheaper mod would be for some of you old porkers to shed the 40+ lbs you're carrying around your midriff.

I know my Trail 90's would greatly appreciate the rider dropping a few pounds... Embarassed They just don't have the horsepower they did back when I was in college and MUCH thinner affraid

Pipe and battery are probably least expensive significant weight loss at ~$28.00/lb.
Remove the tail "thing" behind the seat. ~5 lbs., $0.00.
Do you need both stands? Remove one (or both) ~5 - 15 lbs., $0.00.
Remove rear fender extension ~ 1 lb., $0.00.
I don't like the weight either but can't see eliminating anything or spending so much for so little, percentage that is. 20/550 = ~3.6%

But you lose some weight and add on a lil bit of horses to your SWing. To me that's improving the P-T-W ratio... Smile

But as said above, the rider has to shed off that unwanted lbs to reduce the overall weight... I need to shed off lots too...

Thanks for all your responses. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I do not carry much weight. Just wanted to know if anyone had tried anything to lighten the swing.
