light weight flywheels

Evening All I have fitted a scootronics stator plate and I am very pleased with it. I see he is now selling mid weight flywheels what are the advantages or not of fitting them. Thanks.

I think they are a good compromise. I can't really think of a downside. The engine feels quite nippy and you barely notice it to be honest. They do like to rev a little more maybe and feel smooth at speed. The only thing I have noticed is that the engine feels a tiny bit stop, start when it's cold. But that's it.

All of the above and also more crank friendly. Less likely to twist when you miss one of them gear changes we all do from time to time. Plus it may just balance the flywheel a bit better if there a Indian flywheel he’s doing. We’ve turned a few down on the lathe and some are all over the place.
There’s only positives I think.

Scootronics one also has some extra slots for checking clearance on the pickup and pole pieces.
