We weighed our bikes at the track yesterday
My C350 was 308lb and the 175 was 253lb.

I was leaving T12 getting onto the front straight yesterday during the Hawk track school and got distracted by a flash of orange. Zach was riding a nose wheelie on his KTM motard down the hot pit. I took it as a test/learning experience about target fixation.

I just rolled it onto one side of the scale and held the bar lightly.

When you were holding it lightly, were you standing on the scale? Just kidding... seems a bit heavy. I would assume that if you strip one down you should be around 225 to 230. When you start remaking parts in aluminum and titanium, you should be able to start getting in the teens. If your obsessive compulsive and and a really fucked up schedule, you can probably get one down around 209.

My bike is a vertical which I guess is somewhat heavier than a sloper as a starting point. Stock steel rims and a fork that is probably overkill on this bike.
I was thinking about a hollow pin chain though :)

Anyone ever have oil leak out of the cam chain tensioner bolt on the front of the engine? Mine was a little wet yesterday.

Thanks JohnnyB
I was too tired last night to even look at a parts book. I'm hoping this is an external o ring.
