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.
43 pounds? That is it? Can't see that upsetting balance too much. Empty your windshield washer reservoir just in case
Seriously, thanks for taking the time to weigh all that. I think I might do this soon, 43 pounds is a nice weight savings.
You going to drive around with them out?
