Is it possible to replace the chrome oil reservoirs on the levers with something lighter? I was hoping something carbon....

They're plastic under the chrome anyway, weight saving will only be 5g each max, possibly not even that.

One of the reasons to 'tune' the lwvers is the fact that I do not like the silver covers. Would it be asy to paint them black instead?

Yup, abrasive to get a key and then a decent primer and top coat.
