Well if people have received them it is a little too quiet on here, don't you think? What do they really end up weighing, for stock class race legal? Or can't anyone lift them to get them weighed? Just kidding, I hope less than 560 lbs. but am quite skeptical...........
Yes, the racers have their RX-1's. Those of you expecting them to be within 5% of the weight of an SRX, they're not. It's more like around 10%. I didn't get an exact number but what M10rules said was pretty much the same answer I got. I have actually seen it (not in race trim yet) and they go OK, but not earth-shattering (full on clutching and lowering will make a big difference). Appearantly, Yamaha has some complex break-in procedures they want the racers to follow and with the testing that will need to be done for this model, they probably won't be racing them until early August.
Just clarifying how I came up with my percentages. I compared the advertised weight of the SRX against the apprx. weight (from a reliable source) of the RX-1. If you use the ISR filed weight of the SRX, then you will probably be about 5% difference. My mistake for using advertised weight.
