Lightend flywheel = cool

So I had a machine shop shed some pounds on my flywheel. ~5-7lbs.

I have never driven a car with a lightened flywheel, it revs up pretty quick. And when you let off the gas to shift it will drop the revs way down... which takes some getting used to.

All in all, great "mod" for $25.

It was for my 900.

Wow, this is on my must do list...

Sad, b/c I just did a clutch job. The local NAPA wanted 65 to resurface. I did not ask about lightening after that quote.

So much work to get back in there!!!

Its true! I can't wait to try mine out.

When I drove the ng900 to Topher's house I was wondering why the revs were dropping so fast, I had pretty much forgotten about the flywheel. Then I remembered what we had done when I was about a block from his house
