Weight reduction after swapping for full system?

i know there are going to be differences due to which brand and model of header and can selected, but what's the estimated average weight removed when the oem exhaust is replaced with a full system?

thanks,

Dan

Who cares. Does a couple of kilos really matter?

The M4 full system saves 5kg (10.7 lbs) and I think the more weight saved the better, even if its just a couple of kilos, it makes the bike more agile and easier to handle, as well as faster.

PS - must go to the gym and lose a few kilos myself

The greatest weight saving for my bike would be for the rider to shed a few KG too LOL.

Just got my 1000F and the first mod is to remove the redundant pillion pegs, looks better IMHO and loses a couple of KG while lowering the CG an imperceptible level.
