figure 8-10 pounds equals one hp. 100 pounds will be a possible 10 hp difference. In practical terms it is less, but that is a guideline.

I notice a huge difference in acceleration if my wife is on the back of my bike. Probably pretty comparable to the situation you're talking about. My bike feels fast if she's been on the back all weekend and then I get my first ride by myself in a while and Holy Shit! That's what I've been missing...

It does make quite a difference.
My buddy has a 05 CBRRR. We checked our gearing and it's the same.
He's ~140lbs and I'm ~180. Not much difference.
From a roll, he'll slowly creep away on me. (We're talking one gear pull, just crack the throttle, no shifts, nothing)

Nice way to start around here. No one forced you to read this thread or comment, he had a legitimate question regardless of your assumption as to what his motives were behind the question. So may I suggest to keep your unprovoked insults to yourself and if you can't post without insulting others, find a new site.

Does this mean that I could add horsepower to my bike by losing weight? Maybe we should have a How-To on this. Free horsepower!

Force = Mass * Acceleration
or
Acceleration = Force / Mass = (Torque*wheelradius)/Mass
for the same bike exerting the same Torque curve characteristic,,different Masses on the bike will result in Directly affected different Accelerations.
...
More Massive the less Acceleration you will exhibit.
Less Massive the more Acceleration you will exhibit.
...
I can tell the difference in how the bike pulls with a full gas tank vs. an empty tank. (10 lbs. makes a noticable difference)

Ok, someone reported his post and I didn't catch that, but it did strike me as odd that they were both from the same city. Brain on slow today, sorry about that...
