    No BS here. Only measured values not something out of a book.

    I just for the heck of it went out and weighed my two sleds. Doing each ski then at the track with a bathroom scale this is what I got (probably could go +-15 lbs or so for inaccuracy of scale and method)

    1992 XCR 440 - 564 lbs
    2002 ProX 440 (liquid) - 520 lbs

    These are ready to hit the trail weights.

    510 lbs for the cat 650 and 548 lbs for the F3. Dry straight from the book. Add 6.2 lbs for each gallon of gas and about 7 lbs for oil. Plus my fat ass and I'm surprised how quick they go[]
    Bloody boats compared to todays sleds.
    Good thing I'm 6 foot and 210 lbs.(mostly muscle although the beer does take it's toll).

    I said no book measurements for a reason: They are 99.999% of the time flat out wrong...

    For instance, the proX is 470lbs. The only thing added to it to make it trailable is a gallon or two of gas and some coolant. Figure a gallon of each, thats ~14 lbs. So my sled should weigh 484 lbs right? wrong....

    Ooops me bad.
    Your bathroom scale method while inventive will not be very accurate.
    Unless you have 3 scales (1 for each ski and 1 for the track).

    I would be willing to bet that it is within 15 lbs though... I did block the rest that the scale was not under so they maintained even height.

    I belive ripperd is right because if you look in any of the sled magazines they do it the same way ripperd does only they use digital scales.
