I just removed everything to do with the kickstart mechanism and it all weighed 5.1 pounds. The action at the lever has to go through quite a few gears and mechanisms. Glad to be rid of it. The modded clutch cover only netted me .08 pounds, but that was with the aluminum plug for the ks shaft so I am happy. Every little bit counts. While I am in there the layshaft bolt is going to get replaced with the new bolt that Devotee came up with and I have a new primary chain on it's way. The parts guy at the Yamaha shop ran a search and came up with one at a Texas dealership and it was the only one that came up so I jumped on it. Very reasonable price too as it was $75 cheaper than the nos one on ebay. A little cross referencing came up with some cryo'd aluminum clutch plates to replace the steel ones. I'm shooting for the lightest stock bodied xs there is.
