583 with out the engine in it. I had the chance to lift a few between last winter and now and im sure its more. THe MachZ is around 583 and i can lift that no problem. The RX1 felt nailed to the ground and i almost thru my back when trying to lift it.
I would say its 610 dry. This is not a bash just an observation.
I mean common, if it was only 583 (which is not really bad for a muscle sled) why would they not tell everyone the weight and put front bumpers on it that cant support the weight.
Im talking about lifting it up from the front ski/suspention. Even thou thats not really accurate it was still harder then H*LL lifting the one side. Also the rear of the yamaha is not really light either. Its about the same as the mach. Maybe cause of all the exhaust crap in the back.
It will still be a good machine, but the more i see this thing the more i still want a 2 stroke.
I am not to sure if Yammie was truthful about the 5% dry weight difference between the RX-1 and SRX. According to all of the info on this site the figure for the RX-1's weight is 583 lbs dry, and according to Yamaha the 2002 SRX is 522lbs if both of these figures are correct their is a 12% weight difference. Now the SRX would really have to weigh 555lbs and the RX-1 583lbs to have a 5% wieght difference. So now if you bought an RX-1 comparing it to an SRX through Yamaha's literature you were expecting to get a sled that weighs 548lbs, a HUGE difference. The way I see the situation, not matter how you slice it Yamaha lied about its weight, and that is frustrating that the manufacturers have to be like politicians. I am sure it will be a good sled and I cant wait to try one (hopefully I will have the opportunity), but like the Viper Hype last year I am sure there will be some expectations that are not met for some riders.
