Are there ways, other than drilling/dremeling the parts, to tune them to reduce the weight?

The BTP carbon clamps don't fit the new shifters, so not sure what else can be done there.

For the front derailleur, can the plates and bolts be replaced with lighter versions? I already got a carbon chain stopper to replace the stock one. Far and Near has a tuning kit, but it seems like it's more for show. Not sure if it offers any real reduction in weight.

Anyone have any ideas? A lot of info on tuning pre-2012 versions.
