It is probably easer for you to drop 5 pounds then to shave it off your bike 
with center stand removal
Your ex. System is the fastest way to drop weight and perk up your engine

Subject: Re: [Nighthawk Lovers] Weight of the centerstand?


Ugh, just imagining going through putting it on and taking it off every oil 
change made me cringe.

Totally not worth the effort for such a tiny weight change, especially one down 
low where it won't even affect handling.

I would guess it is about 3-4 lbs for the assembly. So maybe ~.5% of total bike 
weight. Knowing that it is VERY useful but only a small percent of times, you 
could pull it to save weight and bolt it up for oil changes and service.

The center stand doesn't weigh much at all. It's pretty small, and it's made of 
bent and welded tube instead of solid stock. One spring, three bolts; there 
just isn't much there.

It's utility-to-weight ratio is AMAZING though.

If you're looking for performance improvements, I'd look elsewhere; you won't 
feel it. Synch the carbs, make sure they're clean, use good quality fuel, get a 
good quality fuel filter.

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to ask a pretty simple question on here,after SCOURING the 
internet for HOURS,with ZERO-ANSWERS ANYWHERE!!! LOL.

Anyhoo...........I have a a 2001 Honda CB-750 that I bought "used" a few years 
ago,and have enjoyed MANY trouble-free miles with it!!! When I get "bored",I 
try to find a NEW way to "enhance" it's power/performance characteristics,and 
knowing that by simply increasing it's "power-to-weight" ratio,is probably one 
of the easiest ways to do this,I wanted to ask ANYONE OUT THERE who may know 
the answer to this,...................

HOW MUCH,does the centerstand ONLY,on this motorcycle weigh??? That's INCLUDING 
all the nuts/bolts/collars,etc. that connect it to the bike itself!?!?

Any help on this question,would be GREATLY appreciated!!! When I bought this,it 
had already been "lowsided" twice by the previous-owners of it,so I had to 
rejuvenate it with some used parts,etc. to get it road-worthy,but it DID NOT 
COME with the centerstand on it!!! There is only the "holes" in the frame where 
it used to attach to it,so knowing this............I KNOW that by NOT having it 
on the bike,that REDUCES the overall "weight" of it significantly!!! Which 
helps not only my gas-mileage,but my power/performance as well!!! So again,if 
anyone knows the answer to this,PLEASE post on here!!! Thanks again!!! Keep the 
rubber on the road!!! ~Peace~
