Lightened conrods

Now then

These are stock conrods, reduced 100g each in weight and now both balance at 479g
Using them on the r65 track bike, along with fully lightened gearbox, engine internals and full race HPN cam

The bike is running an 1150 rear end and wheels with r1 forks, decided to make a new subframe and rear shock mount

All the best

Is that a positive response!?!

I think the rods are at a safe point, but I'm of the 'don't try never know' mentality

Just I case I've collected parts for three engines and gearbox's!!
