on the shimano website, are the weights that they state for their components accurate?? i realise they must be to some extent but i want exact weights.

if not, where could i find the exact weight of the components

From the various components I've personally weighed, Shimano's weights are close. Exact? Due to different metal densities,each component will variate. The only way to get exact is to weigh the individual component. Use Shimano's weights as a bench mark. They may weigh more or they may weigh less.
