A very simple qusetion

Postby leobailey » Tue Aug 06, 2019 6:06 pm

How much does a 350cc heavyweight machine weigh ready for the road, there I told you was a quickie

Why do they get heavier with age :?:

Not that simple to answer, you do not tell us the year and model.

You'll have to work out your fuel and oils weights.
According to the owners' manuals dry weights are:
Rigid 344 lbs
Springer to 1959 375 lbs
Competition 300 lbs.
Springer 1960- 382 lbs

Hi

My 61 G3 works out at a little over 416lbs, this includes the transmission oils, engine oil and fuel, I also assume it includes the factory supplied tool kit.

My bike differs from factory spec by having a Halcyon bar end mirror the mass of which I have negated based on my Armours silencer not having much in the way of internal baffling.

So I'll assume around 375 to 400 lbs for my 1959 G3.

It still feels a lot heavier than my G3 felt in 1961, or is that my age.

I took the G80S 1956 onto the farmer's weighbridge and it was 410lbs but the petrol tank wasn't brim full.
