We often obsess with saving weight at every chance we get, and we started wondering if some of the most popular mods we do actually add on weight or reduce the weight of the bike. So we put together this blog post for you.

By all means we are not saying do these to save weight, but what we are trying to get at is that most of us never think of the weight aspect when it comes to these mods.

Even though S1000RR parts were used as an example here, the results will be fairly consistent if they were swapped out for Panigale parts. The weight savings associated with the gas cap would be even higher when it comes to the gas cap of the Panigale as well since the stock gas cap of the Panigale is rather on the higher end of the scale.

You can read the short but interesting blog post we just put up here: https://www.motomillion.com/blogs/motomillion-blog/5-mods-you-didnt-think-of-as-weight-reduction

So are there any mods which you can name that is not directly associated with weight savings, but at the end of the day it does save weight off the bike?

Only since you asked and in addition to your fine list, I can suggest:
1) No Fats
2) No Carbs
3) No Sweets
4) No Alcohol
5) No Seconds

You'll be surprised with how much weight you can take off an overladenned bike. However, be warned, the installation is most difficult. On that note, the all encompassing Lemmy at Revzilla considers it a "5" on their Beard Scale of Difficulty. Also, you may not see results at the end of the day. In fact, it may take you months to dial it in just right but when you do, the Panigale will accelerated and brake faster, handle much better with less wear and tear on all moving parts. >:)
