    How much weight do you figure you added to your bike? Racks-hand guards-tool tubes...

    With my Cycle Rack and hand guards and a full Clark tank I'll bet my TW is 17 to 20 lbs heavier than stock

    Added weight:Front and rear manracks, footpegs, rox risers, barkbusters, RAM mount phone holder, Shinko front tire, Jimbo shield, ricochet skid plate, kick starter.

    Lost weight: IMS shifter, me (20lbs since January), shorty levers

    Potential weight savings: lithium battery

    Probably a saw off...

    With a lead acid battery and a full load out of spare gas, tools, food, & emergency gear Betty Boop rolled across the scales at 330 lbs. a few years ago on the cusp of an extended remote ride. Various stock weights have been bandied about over the years by the marketing types but if one accepts the recent claim of 279 lbs then I've asked the old girl to haul an additional 50 lbs.

    I get it now! He was looking at your rear sprockets. Technically it is an 18 speed.

    Actually, it could be considered to be a 30 speed bike.

    Five speeds in the engine (5) x two front sprockets (2) x three rear sprockets (3) = 30 speeds

    If I transferred this setup to my TW226 6-speed, then I would have a 36 speed bike - but who cares.
