Look in the "listings"!
There are some forks where the tabs have been cut off, so you can calculate, as I remember weight saving was about 22g +/- !!!!!

Hi,

Left (disc side) lower leg of RST Mozo Pro '99 weights 250 g, right 237 g. Therefore tabs in this fork, including weird cable stop at the top of left leg, weight 13 g.
