Both for a shipping weight but more importantly to see if it is a good option for a small, simple rat rod project I am considering. I don't have any details to share. I am purely at the data gathering stage, with particular focus on the legal requirements for registation. I am also considering other engines like the V-Max 1700 and Harley but I keep coming back to the M109R engine for pure looks, grunt, sound and technology. I would like to know an accurate weight to add to the other data, as I have found details for the V-Max and Harley engines.Why? Shipping quote?
