Geeto,
Here are a few suggestions:

Aluminum swingarm?
Rear caliper, replace it with one off a CR80. E gay is full of them
Plastic chain guard
Lose the center stand
Aluminum oil tank - looks trick and can be relocated
530 chain and alloy sprockets. Stock is 630 and I don't know if you can go to 520. Maybe 525?
Alloy lower triple clamp?
Lighter brake disks


I think spoked wheels with alloy rims are lighter than any mag type wheel unless it is real magnesium i.e. Morris or Dymag

Geeto, I dont have a real planned conversion. I have just seen lots of CR80 calipers on Egay and they are really small and go cheap. It looks like a cool setup. I am going do do it on my Seca550 rear brake before next race season. Another good way to lose weight is to go with a Rickman frame. Other than the fact that they are really hard to find and really expensive, they would be cool.
