O7 weight

Has anyone ever actually weighted an 07 wet? I mean with all fluids. Just wondering what the actual weight really is?

thanks

HEAVY!!>..lol, sorry I couldn't resist. I haven't weighed it but I would venture to say it is going to be real close to 400 pounds with fluids...

They tend to be in the 405-420 range depending on the scale.

Back in the 80's when the KLR came out it was common for dry weight to mean no battery as well. So the old 337 dry weight is pretty close. Battery is about 12-14 pounds or so and about 55 pounds of gas/oil. Right in that 405-420 range wet.
