Re: Removing my CA smog crap
What smog "stuff" gets in the way?
If you were tracking it, I'd say strip it down. But that's not it, is it?
The CAT has substatial weight to it. But the canister is less than 1 pound. The PAIR valves don't weigh a quarter pound combined. And none of it will give you better gas mileage. Infact, you will loose some. Are you planning on gutting your tank? After all, it has a blockage to only let unleaded nozzles work. Wheels would be your best bet. 1 pound of unsprug wieght is like 5 pounds anywhere else on the bike. If you reduce the unsprung weight by 9 or 10 LBS, your accelleration, braking and turning will be vastly improved.
