+1 on weight after chop.. might be some easier options        

End weight has always been a question of mine as well. If you wanted to get creative, you could plop a triangular platform on a set of three common bathroom scales. Put the bike (full tank) up on the platform on the center stand, get the total weight, then deduct the weight of the platform.

Caveat: since bathroom scales can be so inaccurate, I would do something to calibrate them first with a known weight. Also, some scales give differing readings if the weight is not well centered, so maybe you might want to do something like putting the platform on something like one or two bricks on the center of the platform on each scale.
