Man these Vaqueros are heavy!

Yanked off my rear wheel today to bring it in for a new tire and just about gave myself a hernia lowering it down through the cutout in my lift! Pulled out my incredibly accurate bathroom scale and found out the whole rear wheel assembly weighs 58 pounds! The pulley alone weighs 9lbs! I know I'm used to sportbikes but that is insane! If I remember right my V&H slip ons were around 50lbs, which was close to the same as the stock mufflers. And the Kawasaki sissy bar weighs 15lbs. Do they make these whole bikes out of solid lead?!?

I still love it, just thought knowing how much these parts weigh (about) was kind of interesting.

If it was made out of composite and much lighter, you would get yourself killed.
