just weighed my 1098s F/R

Pretty much what I expected.

(Me off the bike with the fuel light on)
Total : Weight 186.8 Kg
Front : Weight 94.8 Bias 50.7% %
Rear : Weight 92 Bias 49.3% %

(me on it feet off ground, no fuel)
Total : Weight 266.2 Kg
Front : Weight 126.3 Bias 47.4% %
Rear : Weight 139.9 Bias 52.6% %

I have stock chain+gearing
But I have moved forks down about 3.5mm so theres 11mm showing above triples as opposed to 14.5mm above triples.

Since I'm not aware of any other bike ever being weighed in quite this way, .....
Next time "(Me off bike with full tank of fuel)" would seem more informative.

These are quite interesting findings. They do not tally exactly with my own, but it's a while ago when I did my weigh.
As for weighing the bike complete (with fluids) ready-to-ride, but with an empty (or near empty) fuel tank - this is how Master Bike weighs the bikes, and their findings are published by many mags around the world.
The weight with the rider in situ is interesting, although with the rider being a dynamic (mobile) weight, sitting position would have an influence.
Other changes on the bike can have an influence on the weight bias - eg. replacing the stock mufflers with Termis or similar removes 3 kgs (almost 7 lbs) from the very back of the machine.

Gimme a chance to fill it up Weighed it with 80% full of fuel too so I could see what influence the fuel load played and here it is:

Me off the bike-
Total : Weight 192.1 kg
Front : Weight 97.6 Bias 50.8% %
Rear : Weight 94.5 Bias 49.2% %

On the bike-
Total : Weight 275.6 kg
Front : Weight 128 Bias 46.4% %
Rear : Weight 147.6 Bias 53.6% %

I do have Termi slip-ons

You're going to have to lean forward further son - You're upsetting the weight distribution!

tell me about it leaning just ain't enough to tame this bitch.
now heres why I know think that ducati runs the forks round 14.5mm more weight forward n it Gets the bike holding tighter lines it won't lift much stays planted but I just can't trail brake that's the catch

I'll move forks back to stock position and do another weigh in.

Thanks for the numbers but what's optimal with rider on the bike? I assume that's what really matters?

Optimal for what task?

I personally believe everything in life is about compromise just like a bike setup.
For me its more about getting rid of things I don't like, rather than asking for more of what I don't need.

A street bike that sees trackday duty.

I've read in another forum +2% on the front wheel. BTW I'm with you getting rid of what you don't like. I'm running DK's ride height numbers now 235mm rear ride ht., 2 lines showing on the Showas, and the front wheel feels WAY overloaded, steering is very heavy.
