I have a 50 that I have lightened up to get in the 4500 class with me (180 lbs) on it.It still has all the hyds.,pto,rocks haft,battery box and seat.My question is how much weight can I loose if I strip everything off the bacb and put a alum. flat back on it.I am runing 16.9x34 rear 9 bolt tins and 12" boat trailer tires on front. Do you think I can get it down enough to run in the 3500 class. Thanks for any help.

Not a hope to make 3500lbs.
There is weight in that rad, aircleaner and exhaust pipe/muffler mount. A lot of weight in long rear axles too.
