What do you expect from the bolts? That your bike is 200g lighter?

Not really, just looking much better and won't rust as the OEM does being on Phuket and seaside Krabi a bit.
I first thought of getting SS bolts but titanium is more flexible.
To gain a 200-gram reduction in weight I just skip a beer or two.

The best and easiest way to lose weight from the bike, if that was what you wanted, is to fit a lithium battery

3kg weight reduction for around £50/$60

You are so lucky living in such a beautiful part of the world!
Where it doesn’t rain all summer. In fact we had so much rain this month that the local dam was damaged and almost failed.

The town had to be evacuated

Twenty two 12” industrial pumps were brought in to empty out the 1.3 million tons of water.
They were pumping 7,000 litres per minute out and after four days it was declared safe.

A Royal Navy heavy lift Chinook helicopter was brought in and dropped 550 tons of stone on to the damaged part of the dam wall to try and stabilise it.

There is a lot of rain in Phuket and the rest of Thailand. But mostly it's a LOT of rain in short showers. And that rain is 30 degrees warm.

BTW Ede, I think a 200-gram weight reduction probably is gained by the rear Stealth sprocket alone already
