I always thought the Aussie ones were listed as 132 kg wet. But they have heaps of ADR crap that is foisted upon us.     I've got a box of road bits that I don't use that weighs 5kg.confuse .


The TTR with a GYTR muffler and B and B bash plate, bark busters and heavy duty tubes, mine weighed 126 kg with quarter of a tank of fuel.   Still fitted with horn tail light and  headlight.

I have since managed to get another 7 kilos off that weight.    



I dont know how good my scales are but as a reference and for info, I measured two WR250F's in similar condition to the TTR, stripped down for the bush riding.  With HD tubes, bash plate, hand guards and rad guards.

US spec one  -    Empty tank DEP slip on muffler standard battery was 117 kg


Aussie one  -      Arrow Titanium muffler and lithium battery and steeering stabiliser - 118.5 kg.

Both near enough to empty fuel tanks.

And my CCM404 was 136 stripped down for the bush with an empty tank.   cry


Interesting enough, the TTR was lighter on the back wheel than the WR's, but heavier on the front wheel.   And you can feel the difference lifting either end.   The back of the TTR is light as, but the front is a bastard to lift up.

 

So they are all heavy, and the TTR is only a couple kilos heavier (stripped down) than a WR.

They all feel light to ride, but heavy to push!!

Oh and I had a mates brand spankin new 2017 Husky 501 in the shed.. For curiosities sake, same day, same scale half a tank of fuel it was.............

124kg! I would have thought lighter, it felt heavier than the TTR.

But about double the HP, or more.

Yes you are VERY close...

1 liter of gasoline  weighs 0.76kgs

10 liter tank = 7.6kgs

Lose a kg or so with a tubeliss system instead of h/d tubes, but it's an expensive kg!

I thought 4kg was a pretty good weight loss.
