Re: Flywheel weights?
There was one on my KDX220 when I bought it. I always rode with it, and loved it. When I got my GG xc250, it didn't have one, but a friend 'donated' a 12 oz. I ran the weight for one race, and took it off. My only problem with it was the loss of off-idle throttle response. For their intended purpose, flywheel weights are great. They make your biker harder to stall, and reduce powerband 'hits'. On the GG, there's no hit to worry about in the first place, and I didn't have much trouble stalling without the weight, so I took it off. I would probably run mine again if I knew I was heading into a mud race, and wanted to have slower power delivery to help with traction. One great thing about a flywheel weight is that you can put it on or take it off in a few seconds, so you can easily change depending on conditions.
