Thread: Lightened Flywheel

Does a lightened Flywheel (i.e. Rad) mean no more stock charging?
Is the stock Charging really needed? I know it adds an element of maintenence...

You can have a lightened flywheel and still charge. It depends on the flywheel and the setup.
I've never had much luck with lightened flywheels on motors/ski's that run high rpm's for extended periods of time.
For a once-in-awhile blip or high speed run it's ok. They work great in stand-up skis to rev up quicker.

Send it to TJ and get it welded and rebalanced. That will help with the cracking issues. But from what I hear, they will all eventually crack.

I hit the search hard on this one and found that a lightened flywheel is not a good thing in teh rough water I run in.

If you ride mostly in rough water, you may look into adding a 2" extension.
You would need to replace the intermediate shaft with a 02-08 part.

Jerry sells a kit in the online store that has the spacer and dowels in it.
1. Remove the pump
2. Loosen one hose clamp on the hose between the pipe and waterbox
3. Remove all 4 engine mount bolts
4. Slide engine forward
5. Remove the 3 bolts holding the int shaft to the wall
then the int shaft should come out
