The new R6 redlines at 17-5 too.

I think you made a very good choice BTW.

Can't wait to hear how it responds to mods.

"Dry weight" probably meaning no oil, no water, no fuel, no battery, no brake fluid, no clutch fluid, no grease, no fluid in the damper, no fork or shock oil... and so on. So basically meaningless. Cool bike though, you made a good choice.

Post some pics.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: 2006 CBR1000RR Dry weight Look inside!!!!!

on some bikes dry weight doesn't even include tyres, because different tyres have different weight, so they don't include it.

I wonder if thats weighed the same as how they weighed the 929 (manual says 379 for that). How do they feel compared to each other?

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Ignore them dry weight is no oil or gas (may not include break/clutch but that is trivial). Still way down from my '04

Must obey the sheep dog

I'd like to see measurements in the comparison tests where they weigh it as is with a set amount of fuel... say 10 litres. They're getting a little obnoxious with the dry weight claims.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: 2006 CBR1000RR Dry weight Look inside!!!!!

in response to R6 redline, Yamaha claims that rediculous redline for bragging even though it isn't usable. basically they claim higher redlines than needed. other companies can claim a higher redline but it wouldn't be a true redline.. its just an over statement

a bit myopic. (do sheep wear glasses?). Most dry weights are derived from the weight of the components, not of the assembled bike and usually do not include non manufacturer provided parts (tires, fluids even suspension components on some models). Whenever someone comes out with something very light, everyone else develops a new technique for quoting weight figures. I had one particular bike that had a claimed dry weight of 448 pounds, but with the fuel tank bone dry, it weighed 528 pounds. Now tell me where the other 80 pounds came from?

well that happens to be the exact weight of the Leprecaun who sits inside the motor and does all of the actual work of making it turn. He's put in last just before shipping so he doesn't die in transit.


I see these dry weights as just a guideline. Sitting on the bikes gives you a better idea. When I sit on an 04-05 1000RR it doesn't feel a whole hell of a lot heavier than a 929. It feels like it carries the extra weight pretty well (I haven't ridden one yet so I can't attest to at speed feel)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
