LT Weight

Just for grins I stopped in at the local truck stop and ask if they would put my LT on the scale. I left the tool roll in it, but took the extra stuff out of the bags. With all the fluids filled and a full tank of fuel it was 870 lbs.

Jim,

The scale MUST be out of calibration... that is a lot more than BMW claims the weight to be... you're not saying that they would LIE to us, are you?

Where the bike is located on the scale has a HUGE effect on the weight shown on such a small vehicle.

My 2002 weighed in at just under 850lbs, several different places on the scale. This was a really accurate scale at our recycling center. I've seen it register a 10lb difference when something was removed from the bed of my 7800lb dually.

IIRC, BMW states the 'wet' weight at 853 pounds. I'm sure that doesn't include the took kit. Also, did you have any other extras added to the bike that are not OEM. Given all that, are we really gonna squawk about 17 pounds or less. I'm guessing the 853 spec is pretty darn close. They may not have included other OEM extras, as well (i.e. CD Changer, trunk rack, and so on...).

Just like GM used to advertize -- lots of road hugging weight!

Maybe someone at BMW made a mistake when converting kilograms to pounds. It's a metric thing.

Adversity builds character.
