What are some ways to lighten up the storm so it isn't so heavy?

With the slp pipes and stinger cans the sled has around 145-150 hp right?

You can swap out the steel suspension parts for aluminum, same for the front end structuring.

There is a ridiculous amount of ways to lighten up your sled, the question of it is how much money you are willing to spend, which IMO is a waste when you can go buy a Newer Edge chassis or IQ chassis later on.

Aluminum front suspension, Edge tank/shorty seat, new track (if the track is original, the track is heavier than a new Camopalast track, Replce your bumpers with carbon fibre parts, loose parts you dont need.

And do yourself a favor and get rid of the Camoplast skis!

Ways to lighten your sled all come with a big price tag

AL, Cromoly or titaniium radius rods
Cromoly or carbon fiber trailing arms
Air shocks
GenII/Edge gas tank
Boss Seat
aftermarket hood (BRTech, mountainfit etc..)
aftermarket rear suspension

I had a Strom, and it will never be a light weight. With that said get it handling the way you want and go spank the hell outta the twins in the rivers,lakes and or 1000ft grass,snow and ice runs.
