681 grams.

Essential for the road, but @$40 each.
For track days remove them and put a 10mm shank bolt with mudguard washers in the holes where the front indicators were to retain the fairings.

Wow, that's clever - I love low-buck mods like that!

Want 20mm higher rearsets to help that grinding feeling you get every corner?
just remove the bobbly bits from the pegs.

Well it still grinds, but the pegs fold up and you wont end up on your ass like fixed rearsets do.

Cost $0.
