996 and bathroom scales
The weather outside was shitty this morning so I decided to try and weigh my 2000 996 on the bathroom scales.
I set the bike up on front and rear pitbull stands and carefully lowered the rear onto the scale and took a reading then did the same with the front.
Rear reading was 155lb
Front reading was 185 lb
total combined weight 340lb.
Before the flaming begins I want to point out that this bike has been on a serious diet for the 19 years that I have owned it.

I took the body work to be painted today so that might add a pound or two.
Waiting for the mail man to deliver a DP carbon air box that I bought from my buddy Paul in Toronto.
Engine is stock, cases never been apart but I have replaced 4 flaking closing rockers.
