Post your wet weight and front-to-rear weight bias

Apparently a few have already measured their bikes, lets post up some results.

Bike - Measured Wet Weight (front-to-rear weight bias, percentage)
2000 Honda VTR1000 SP-1 - 200.5kg (50.1 F/49.9 R)

Measured with two scales, average of two measurements.


Numbers from Roadracing World, March 2007
2007 Honda CBR1000RR - 204.1kg (51.6 F/48.4 R)
2007 Kawasaki ZX-10R - 204.6kg (51.0 F/49.0 R)
2007 Yamaha YZF-R1 - 208.2kg (51.9 F/48.1 R)

465 wet (not bad)...so basically the same weight as new liter bikes (maybe 15-20lbs heavier)...but just far less power

After I get moved and settled, I'll throw my piggy on some scales.

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

Euro's came with PAIR, think only the AUS didnt. You should be able to see the PAIR cover behind your oilcooler.
