Thanks for sharing your findings.

Normally you will save approx. 1/2 the weight by going to Ti. Comes in handy when calculating $/lb saved.

i think it's cool, but for me at least it's not something I'm willing to invest in as what i realize my biggest limitation on this bike is myself so i'm spending more time in the gym trying to get to my optimal weight and will probably do YCRS.

But i think what you do is awesome and always enjoy hearing about the process.

Interesting. Good to know. I've been doing the same on my S. Obviously I'm going to see a bigger weight loss with more steel. The bag of steel hardware I have now is pretty hefty.

I checked out TOTO in Japan, but installed Geberit Mera Aqua Clean last year, that's the real thing! (but it doesn't add any bling to my bike...)

Hey Gecko, maybe you could figure out a way to add some ti and carbon fiber to that thing. Then you'll have some bling for that to match your bike.

Bang for the buck is certainly not there from a weight savings vs cost perspective however the stock fasteners are pretty shitty. In my opinion after you have done the routine weight loss program (wheels, Ti pipe, lightweight gear conversion,large fasteners etc) you can venture into the more costly items (CF subframe, CF body, CF tank). From my experience the biggest bang from a performance perspective are wheels, exhaust and drive train. Next are the not so common items.
1 Titanium Rear axle
2 Brembo P424 caliper
3 RAM mag hub
These three items are all "sprung" weight.
4 Lightweight crank, rods, valves, Flywheel, clutch assembly, ring gear
Significant weight savings and its all rotational.
5 Ceramic front and rear rotors
Significant weight savings and again, rotational.
6 LED headlight assembly with the stock fairing stay
This thing is heavy. A race nose piece with a motoholders frame and some sort of small light to remain street legal saves a bunch.
If your carrying 20lbs of unnecessary body weight, well you get the picture.
