Thread: Lightened Flywheels
11-18-2009, 10:02 AM #1
I have heard of the lightened flywheels, and with my recent decision to run a 785 CDI in my Sleeper project, I need to find a flywheel that works with the CDI anyways. What is the advantage to the lighter flywheel? Can I lighten one myself? Or will it turn into a grenade? Will it help my holeshot? Where do I find one? I see this as a feasible option for this ski!

I once had a machine shop lighten one for me on my 1100 yami. I know someone that had one lightened on his 1050. They said too much could cause it to come apart.

That's what I thought. Lighter flywheel = faster revs = faster holeshot. Thats what this machine is being built for. Anyone got an extra light flywheel lying aroung?

Watcon had some for sale on ebay a few weeks ago. I don't know if they sold, but give him a call at 360-692-3492.

Rad had one
Jetinetics made one
Accel had one (Jetinetics, just with Accel name)
MSD made the total loss system that included the aluminum flywheel.
Randy was selling a Rad and the Jetinetics. Like Star said, give him a call, I bet he still has one.
I sold a Rad a few weeks ago.
I think it definately helped rev quicker. I hear it's also suppose to lighten the load on the MAG crank bearings too.

Well, I dont want to go with the Total Loss system because I don't want the hassle of charging the battery every time I ride. But the Rad or the Jetinetics would be an option. I assume either works with the Pro 785 CDI, but not the 650 CDI correct?

They were listed for the 750-780, but they will work with the pro cdi.

Would it help the 785 Pro too? I may need one too!. Holeshot BABY! Wish I would of bought Choppers RAD. But someone bought it already.
