    WTB Lightweight charging flywheel

    I am looking high and low for a aluminum charging flywheel for my Polaris Octane, or a full MSD TL setup. A 1200 flywheel would also work, looking to put in on a 777 twin. Email me at [email protected] if you have one for sale.

    My first thought is to try Randy at Watcon.com.

    Next, maybe see if Sharps Marine can come up with something.

    Lastly would be to have the stock flywheel lightened. Not as light as aluminum, but will knock off nearly a pound.

    Good luck with the search.

    I was reading up on this while looking for some info.

    Some guys made mention of removing the magnets from the stock flywheel in an effort to reduce weight without compromising reliability. Only problem is, it's now a total loss system, and you will definately want to have the flywheel balance checked/corrected.

    GroupK also offers a flywheel lightening service for the Kawi guys. Not sure if he's do a Polaris?

    Please note that some guys have also mentioned the stock flywheel lightening service also may cause cracking.

    Thanks for the info, I may just bite the bullet and go with the full MSD TL. May try spinning the stock wheel one a lathe.

    ask this guy. he seems to do great work according to everyone getting thier flywheel done by him. see if he'll do a polaris octane wheel. I dont see why not. and he's reasonable and super quick turn around time.

    I was looking my self to get the pro original flywheel shaved down. I really doubt it would come apart. its steel!!.

    you can shave down the stock flywheel no problem at all.

    We have done loads, but would advise removing the plastic pick up first.

    Take 1mm off the diameter and 0.5mm off the face...... no more or they can crack .................

    leave a small shoulder near the ring gear also of around 2.0 mm

    We normally mark the timing pick ups onto the ring gear then re stamp the wall once we have finished the machining.

    I am thinking of going this route. Removing material through holes rather than milling off material. Anyone ever tried this?
