perhaps a drill bit and some alloy spacers could shave a bit of weight off? it looks substantial.

How heavy is it !
I'll weigh tomorrow Johnny
I think you’ll find it’s around 4.5kg
Bang on, take the packaging away and it’s 4.5kg. Put it this way, it’s not going to break :D

The weight was one of the reasons I have bought an Ugly Stick off of Zimtim.

I’m yet to try it ..... and hopefully will never need it.

bloody ell thought the xt660z tank off was hard but at least the plugs in a normal side place and easily accessed .....

And I see yamaha have used the same fuel line connector ...cheap snappy plastic :lol: :lol: we have replaced it with a much stronger alloy metal one and its so easy to release ...so much for a "totally new design" raided the parts bin again :o ..

Yes the plastic fairing mounts are also a cheap fragile affair.
I’ve been using throw over panniers without side racks and despite the bike being on its side several times the mounts haven’t broken yet however after reading reports of side panels mounts shearing off I’ve decided to glue in some buttresses cut out of a bottle top bucket I had kicking around.
