Nice to see this thread raised from the dead

Got a chance to weigh my 07 ZX4SES on a Pilot Truck scale on Monday. Without me in it, and between 1/4 & 1/2 a tank of gas, she weighed in at 2500lbs even.

Items removed include:

Bare trunk, completely stripped except wires
No back seat or seat belts/seat belt brackets
No carpet
No center console
No lower dash panel over drivers side fuse box
No brake pedal boot
Cold air intake - Removed complete stock intake system
Windshield washer fluid system delete
Removed hood support
Removed front grill
Removed fog lights
Home-made shorty antenna
Aftermarket steering wheel
Removed all but one wheel-well liner
Somewhat lighter? Coil-over suspension

When I weighed in on Monday my weight reduction at that time did not include the center console/armrest/carpet delete... so technically (but not officially), I should be in the 24xx range now

Like you MattyM3CSL, my next goal is to hit the 23xx range

Almost forgot to mention, I just got the parts in to do an a/c delete. This includes an 05 non-a/c pulley and the specified serpentine belt...still debating whether or not to do it. Although, I've heard it can shed around another 50lbs from our cars.
