If your goal is to lighten up the bike putting a f2 front end or any other front with dual calipers and disk is working backwards. There are other ways to get better braking and suspension.
For the sub frame,depending on how handy you are you could either hack up the stock or make a copy of the hyperform pretty easy.
Your tires could also be a great source of weight loss too. Some of the softer compound tires are much lighter than the regular street type.
I'm keeping the stock rearsets, I'm just going to lighten them up the best I can.
I'm also keeping the stock single brake front end, I was just wondering if the F2 lower triple clamp was lighter than the hawk. Sounds like it's not.
Still wondering about the radiator.. or anything else! Cases?? Shock? Spring? etc
