Diet Parts

On this page you will find items that we regard as 'Diet Parts' or in other words, aftermarket items that will decrease a significant amount of weight from your motorcycle as well as perform their intended task. Items high and outboard on the motorcycle will effect handling dramatically such as lead acid batteries in the tail. Un-sprung items past your shocks or below your forks will help your suspension work better and reducing rotating mass will increase acceleration and reduce braking distances. A few things to note about significant weight reduction:

  • Dividing the weight of your motorcycle by the horsepower it produces will tell you your 'power to weight' ratio.
  • Lower overall weight means better handling, faster stopping, later braking, better acceleration.
  • Less un-sprung weight (items past your shock or below your forks) means better suspension performance
  • Less rotational weight will also dramatically increase acceleration and later braking.
