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

NickTurbo900 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!!!

Yup. I just decided to write about it in the N/A Performance Modifications for the NG900.




It was for my 900.
