What is the weight of AWR/Goodwin side rails for racing seat?

AWR lists the pair at 25 lbs., so 12.5# each? That's my recollection as well, although I did not weigh them individually.

I don't think that 25 lbs is actual weight as almost the same frames for NA/NB listed 7 lbs each

Brian,

Since you are the world's leading expert on modifying NCs, do you know a solution for the emulating the passenger weight sensor when installing race seats? Emulating the airbag itself is a known technique, and there are products you can buy to do so, but the seat-occupancy sensor is a tougher problem.

Funny you ask today as I was asking Mike at MotoEast earlier today if he had any ability to control that through the ECU and the answer was negative. Likewise, I don't have an answer on that, my caged NC track NC never had factory wiring harness so we never had the issue on NC LIGHT. So, if you find an answer please come back and share that.
