Other weight savings come from a smaller battery, a shorter radiator, an aluminum sidestand and a lighter HESD unit that is also moved slightly rearward (and closer to the bike's center of mass). The shorter radiator can also be mounted higher, as the ram-air tubes are now routed through the frame spars instead of between the bottom triple clamp and radiator. The shorter radiator, mounted higher, allows more room for the exhaust header to snake forward before going under the engine, in turn freeing up space for the underengine boom box.
