no rear fender elim. at all saves the most.

headlight delete and replacement with LED strips saves the most.

most effective is rotating mass - go CF wheels !

By all means we are not saying do these to save weight, but what we are trying to get at is that most of us never think of the weight aspect when it comes to these mods.

Even though S1000RR parts were used as an example here, the results will be fairly consistent if they were swapped out for Panigale parts. The weight savings associated with the gas cap would be even higher when it comes to the gas cap of the Panigale as well since the stock gas cap of the Panigale is rather on the higher end of the scale.

You can read the short but interesting blog post we just put up here: https://www.motomillion.com/blogs/mo...ight-reduction

So are there any mods which you can name that is not directly associated with weight savings, but at the end of the day it does save weight off the bike?
using this to drive traffic to your website pretty lame.
Thanks from Nitrouz
