it would take (even Maxgs) longer than that to write an explanation of physics to us simple minded folks.

Whether you're going racing, doing track days or simply maintaining your own bike in your own garage, invest in a decent tool kit. I'm always amazed at the junk that people use to try and work on thier bikes. Things are so much easier when you have the proper tool. And even if you move away from motorcycles in the future, you're not likely to never need those tools again. $100 or so will get you a pretty nice Craftsman set from Sears. You can grow from there.

Sounds basic, doesn't it? It is.

For every 1 Lb of rotating mass you take off your car its equal to losing 4 lbs. Not sure if this goes for bikes as well, but i cant see why not lol

I just can't imagine on a litre bike that the difference in chain weight/friction is actually noticeable. Seems you'd be money ahead simply taking a fat before each race.
