Dualsport tire weight information sought

    I'm looking for a new set of tires for an '86 Honda TLR200. The rear
    rim is 18x1.85, the front is 21x1.4 (a bit narrow, 1.6 wide is more
    common). Rear width shouldn't be much wider than 4", 2.75 on the front
    is ok. The bike weighs only a little over 200 pounds, most of the
    dualsport tire discussion I've seen focus on much heavier bikes.
    Good pavement manners are essential, good dirt performance would
    be nice but seldom used.

    For my purposes, lighter is apt to be better and I wondered if anybody
    knows where a weight compilation might be found. It's a lot of work
    to dig out the information, I'm hoping somebody else already did it.

    Thanks for reading,
