    ArcticXS asked about the weight of some parts... and I just happened to have those parts at arms reach.... so I weighed 'em. That got me to thinking, more than once I've seen a question here about what something weighs. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a list we could just look through to find the answer? Well, let's start one. If you've ever weighed something related to the XS, put it up here. Periodically I'll update this list.

    excellent idea Jim . its the cheapest route to performance gains there is for those of us that like to tear around like hooligans
    it might be surprising to many of us jus how much weight can be shed .

    I did this exercise with my campervan (RV ) and just removing the rear bumper (over rider) and some unnecessary internal woodwork I shed over 120 lbs !
    Pity I couldn't lose that much off my belly !... ahem....
