Weight Saving

For fun, I borrowed a digital scale from the science lab at school and compared the two rear axles.
The stock, steel one:  828 grams, which works out to 1lb, 13 oz!

Next, I put the Triumph 675 rear axle on the scale -- aluminum, and hollowed out.  The result was 408 grams, which works out to 14.392 oz!

The result is a rear axle that is half the weight of stock, or 420 grams lighter, or 14.815 oz -- nearly a pound!
