The Envied H2 Build Log

Alright so to start this off lets introduce myself. My names Kenneth and I just recently separated from the Air Force. I currently live in Las Vegas but will be moving to Newark in February. This is my 4th bike(09 CBR600,10 R1,15 R1 and 16 H2) and second that I currently own(15 R1 and16 H2). The H2 was purchased brand new from a dealer in Cali so it does have the canister that Cali models have but I dont think it affects the performance at all. Enough of the chatter here are the initial pics when I arrived to pickup the bike. I left Vegas at midnight and arrived in San Jose at a little after 7am.

Once I got the bike home it was time to plan out the actual plan for the bike. This bike will of course be mainly ridden on the street but it will be used at the Drag Strip whenever possible. So that's the route I'm going. Pictures of the bike parked next to her sister

So now that we had the bike home it was time to get some baselines for the weight and HP before we do any mods. Here's what we got






Anybody wants to take a guess at the weight after the exhaust change?

Next thing was to order the parts that I could and pull the bike apart to get it ready. Pulling the ECU was a pain but we got through it. Also dropped the exhaust since we had a brand new full Brocks system on the way

Is there a prize for who gets closest?

Well Brocks full exhaust w/ the Alien Head 2 is 11.1lbs & 10.2lbs for slash cut, since the Alien Head 2 muffler is 3.3lbs & slash cut is 2.4 lbs.

Below is what I got for the weight of the OEM muffler & hanger, heat shields & stock headers/cat = 37.28lbs, I might have missed a fastener or 2. So if you're going slash cut like most have then approx. a 27lb loss so figure 492.92 lbs for the bike if fuel/coolant is filled to same exact level & the bike isn't changed any other way... A little more than that if you remove the O2 sensor, wire & connection under the tank which I did because its deactivated anyway & makes for a cleaner look vs the wire/sensor coming out of the exhaust.

You'll lighten up more once you get rid of the OEM tail, etc. I change out batteries every 5th year but I'm going to switch to lighter Lithium battery probably next season (the 3rd) so it's not a waste of the original battery.

Btw: If you're looking to get rid of the front fender reflector you can matching bolts from Kawasaki, same as the other fender bolt.
