Cmt carbon fiber gas tank, think seat foam or guts phantom, ti footpegs, carbon fiber skid plate. I'm building a harescramble bike while I recover from acl replacement surgery. Any other light weight parts you guys might have? Thinking outside the box, thanks guys 256_874_7648

Those are two great ideas to lose weight. Bike is bone stock and brand new. I already have some ti bolts and FMF ti exhaust.Photo

I saved a fair bit of weight from my 450 using various different techniques, see the build thread below:,46/2015-Suzuki-RMZ450-Proper-Build,1312131

I've personally used the 26'' fat bike inner tube before successfully for motocross, however I'm not sure I would recommend it for Hare Scrambles.

The easiest and cheapest way for you to save weight:
-Remove and cut off/smooth back the rear caliper guard and rotor guard mounts
-Replace all the bolts under the tank (fuel pump, electrical fittings etc) with alluminium. Cheap, big savings and no effect on strength as the components aren't under any load
-RM250 screenless filter cage
-Simpify the crank breather to a single tube. Direct it straight back to the rear shock/swingarm
-Get an aluminium rear sprocket (stock is steel)

Your new exhaust will save a good few pounds. There are also a lot of gains to be had from the seat. I used a Guts Phantom foam and saved 1 lb. Titanium bolts and pegs save decent weight, concentrate on the larger bolts first.

Todd Gravitt has some awesome parts, he posted an advert on here recently. Alternatively check out his ebay shop:
