Thanks for the info. However, I am finding difficult to understand how taking out 40 lbs of weight from the center is causing such significant issues. The fuel tank is right there as well, and when you go from a full to a 1/4 tank, you are losing about 100 lbs.
I just removed them myself and weighed everything:
Bottom and side cushions: 7499 g (16.52 lbs)
Bolts: 57 g (.13 lbs)
Right Back Rest: 4630 g (10.20 lbs)
Left Back Rest: ~16.5 lbs (this one was probably off a little since I couldn't use the sensitive scale)
Total: ~43 lbs
Took me exactly 15 minutes to take everything out.
