We spent a long time in development and continue to spend time looking for ways to reduce the weight of our kits where we can. We have been able to get the weight of the current VT1 manifold down to 19 lbs and the current VT2 manifold to 24 lbs. Last time I measured the stock manifold and air box that are removed the total weight of the parts was about 10-15 lbs if I remember correctly.
Stock manifold and air box weigh 12 lbs so total added weight with the VT1 should be about 45 lbs. That is a little less than I thought, good to know.
