Trying to drop weight


Jul 24, 2013
Hi. Thanks for coming to my new thread. I'm new to the technical aspects of my new bike. Use to riding 20' BMX. I hope this gets some attention I will give as much details needed/possible.
I own a 2011 KHS DJ150.
Fork Brand & Model Marzocchi Dirt Jump 3, 100mm travel
Fork Material Single
Brakeset Avid BB5 brakes, Avid FR5 levers
Shift Levers SRAM X.4
Front Derailleur Suntour XCC202
Rear Derailleur SRAM X.5
Crankset Truvativ Rukiton, 24/36 teeth
Bottom Bracket TruVativ Howitzer
Rear Cogs 8-speed, 11 - 32 teeth
Chain KMC Z7
Handlebar Stem Alloy
Headset 1 1/8" Cane Creek Hammer ahead
Rims Weinmann ZAC-X
Tires 26 x 2.3"

The bike is stock as shown in the stock picture. The other two pictures should show an idea of where i'm trying to get with my own dj150.
SPECIFICALLY I wanted to know the parts neccessary to space the sprockets so that I can know how to just create a one speed system as shown in the pictures. or maybe even a single front sprocket and three rear/rightshifter sprockets
Also parts like the chainguard. And the handlebars seem to be lighter and a bit more elevated. Is there a custom headset being used here? Are there certain manufacturers who create these awesome components?

I just want to know how to do this on my own it makes me very exited to see this can be done to my bike.
Once again, Thanks for checking
