Winter and Work have finally eased up enough to get this beast pulled together. Mr. Procrastination, that's me. Bike's been in the trailer since January and now I have 13 days until it needs to be ready - Yikes!

Day 1 - Started to strip her down and lose a bit of weight - 33 lbs gone...

First snag - airbox removal - looks like I'll need to pull the throttle bodies to make enough room to get it out.

No need to remove the T bodies to get the airbox out.  It comes out just fine with a little work.

removing the factory exhaust tumor for an aftermarket one will reduce even more weight... Lipo battery...

Day 2

@chademinent, I'm not sure whether you were messing with me or you are a Chinese-puzzle type genius. I struggled with that airbox for an hour and a half before I decided to go ahead and pull the throttle bodies. Rearsets, exhaust, airbox gone. 

Anyone weigh the factory exhaust? I think it's less than the R3 can, but was more than my feeble 10 lb kitchen scale would handle.

Per Akrapovic's website the factory exhaust weighs in at 15.9lb/7.2kg.

 

And per the same source, you are correct, the R3 exhaust weighs in at 18.1lb/8.2kg

Day 3

Thanks @DewMan. Like a yoyo diet, take weight off then put it back on. Managed to replace shock and add the uber sweet airbox. Started mounting exhaust, then realized the increase in ride height could result in a possible conflict between the swingarm and the Yosh exhaust mount at lower travel limit, so next task will be to modify the mount to provide clearance. Airbox and shock sourced from Andy Palmer.
