    guys do you all know how to Lightweight the daily use road bike?

    I heard the cub prix bike only weight about 80KG , so I might also think to reduce my LC135

    Use aluminium body with hole like this.

    Use aluminium c-arm.

    Use forged rim.

    Or change to alloy rim and smaller tyre.
    Surely your bike is lightweight. Remove spoiler and passenger side step or you can use footrest. Use 415 chain. :D:D
    Then, it will be too light to handle it.:cool:

    Not suitable for daily ride and there is chasis no printed at standard body. Other option is to change footrest and alloy rim.

    in addition to @man_sate post

    - remove center stand
    - replace side stand with aluminum side stand (rcb)
    - replace front fork housing
    -replace your muffler

    mags and tires are the heaviest.

    dont forget to eat only once a day so you you will loose your weight

    Yes you can if fill tubeless fluid inside. Then it will be messy if you want to change to new tyre.
