It's light as a feather compared to a dedicated streetbike. If you're coming from dirt, it will feel heavy. Ditch the common stuff: reflectors, trailer hitch/tractor trailer tail light, steel exhaust system, grab strap, helmet lock, tool bag, etc. There's other ways to drop some weight, but I don't know if it's worth it.

Passenger pegs...if you're going solo...just unbolt thethe left one and cut down the right...shock and awe! They're pig iron...

Depending on year you'll want to ditch the bars for something lighter...06 and older are steel and have a crossbar...

After that...lay off the donuts!

Lots of people install kickstarters as a backup. I'm not sure if the cases are different as far as the E, S, and SM compared to the K model (kickstart only), so I don't know what's involved in blocking off/removing the E start system. Eddie over on ThumperTalk would know the answer to that question for sure. He knows everything about DRZ's. :)
