Kendall Racing ATV weigh-in table Share

I wanted to start compiling a list of actual, race ready ATV weights because magazines rarely do this and manufacturer's weights don't mean much since they are normally dry weights without any accessories that most racers have.  I couldn't afford to get a nice set of connected digital scales that road racers use for setting up a chassis so I just used analog bathroom scales I got from goodwill which were accurate. 
I am not claiming these weights are 100% right but the value of quad 1 vs the value of quad 2 on my scales should be a valid comparison.
