Mon Bazou – Weight Reduction Guide

In depth look at how to remove the most amount of weight possible from the Konig.

Guide to Weight Reduction

Main Goal

I found the most weight that could be removed from the Konig while still being drivable.

Process

I removed and weighed each individual part. Then I installed it and put in one bolt at a time till it would not fall out. I then compared the OEM and aftermarket parts. Any parts not mentioned should be assumed they are the same weight as OEM, or OEM is lighter.
