The rule for parasites is as follows: "The aircraft with the special characteristic Parasite Fighter must be BTN 7-10, and cannot add any more hard points than it naturally has." So it just can't spend weight to add more.
Sorry I've been gone for a bit, but I still pop in here from time to time.
Thank for the clarification on this Patrick!
