  • Capacitor pack
  • Alternator disable switch
  • Full LED conversion
  • Catback exhaust?
  • Partial grill block
  • Manual transmission
I have already seen some custom motorcycles fitted with lithium batteries that are noticeably smaller (and lighter) than the average lead-acid ones. Anyway, decreasing the overall electric load and providing another power source (the solar panel), you could also try a smaller alternator to decrease the drag while it's operational.
