That is nice!  I wonder why the steering head bearing change at 16K?  

I wondered when I saw the tool set, but it doesn't state that he replaced them.  The dude's got a CNC mill in his garage so there's no telling how nutty he is.

 

The bike is probably more perfect than he describes.

"65lbs. shaved".  That seems impossible.

I emailed him asking how he knocked off 65lbs., enjoy.

 

Hey Donzi,
When I got it with 22k miles as a rescue, kept adding everything possible, hard bags, electrics etc. Then got dialed on handling and went other way. I had a photo of one of the first big demo jobs involving the subframe and whale tail piece chop mod and there was a pile taking up a 2'x 4' folding table. Ha!  But chronologically, center stand removal (5lbs), shorai 1lb lithium bat (-5lbs), titanium bolts, tail remod, subframe shave (-17lbs), tail light removal (1lb), akrapovic  titanium full exhaust (11lbs vs oem 36lbs -25lbs), linked brake system remove replace with standard (5lbs tubing and 2secondary master cylinders) more titanium bolts, plugs, covers, new fairing pieces and front fender cut down and heat pad removal. 1.5" Heli bars -1lb. Titan front axel cover plug and oil plug -1 lb. Next project was to be single rear axcel swap with VFR and new lighter mag wheels. more a Ducati wheel and swingarm style move then weight but would shave a few lbs. It plowed corners when first got it and now almost flickable for power weight ratio. 
Hope that helps?
Perry

Now my gears are turning…. How light could you really build a track bird?

Holy shit.  Those are some scary thin spokes, even for CF.

Scariest part is that it doesn't take much of an imperfection or damage to make it fail and it weakens as you stress it...AFAIK.

 

Bugati has wheel replacement as part of the regular maintenance, and it's pretty damn frequent for $20,000 wheels.

Hope he knew what he was doing.  Messing with the swingarm can create all kinds of problems and I'm pretty sure Honda got that part right from the factory.  Looks cool though.
