Hey people of weight weenies! Im looking to tune my 7900 group and I was wondering what ideas you could give me? I have already switched to revl brakes to shave a little weight and I was looking at the far near tuning kit for the rd but I cant seem to find it on ebay.....

Thanks Kevin

They are located in Arizona. They are pretty much a one-stop-shop for all your WW needs.

Guys, have had a quick scout around but can't find a definitive answer.

How much weight do the F&N kits save over stock 7900? I thought Shimano had pushed the limits with 7900 and aftermarket stuff was offering almost no savings?

Why should someone change the original engineered black plastic pulleys with some CNC'd alloy anodized ones? Plastic pulleys outscore metal ones in any possible direction.
The whole look of the Dura Ace group including the RD is so understated and cool ,so that the RD tuning plus with some coloured bolts and pulleys is possibly the worst idea and spent money.
Beside that I agree with the previous poster and doubt that the far and near tuning will bring gains more than 5grams. The Dura Ace RD could be made lighter with a complete overhaul but visually Shimano does not need any tuning IMO.
