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.
It happened on me and i could definitely feel it. I guess you gotta go try it out yourself. I could be wrong
PS. I couldnt bare with the noise from the back for daily driving.
