41 lb is the nominal shipping weight I believe. IIRC, someone in the owners thread actually weighed it and compared it to the stock exhaust and it was lighter.

I live in Folsom now, and last winter I saw below freezing only one time. So running summers year round is definitely doable. I do it, but I usually commute on the train so it's even easier for me.
