Light flywheel

Hudson Valley Motorsports in Ossining NY should have some. I did a batch for them a while ago. Ask for Steve.

your making me think that I need to remove mine -chuck it up in the lathe and turn it down to make it lighter, But a question--If I lighten the flywheel on my BMW's engine braking is reduced badly, I am guessing that I will also run into reduced engine braking if I lighten the stock Ducati 900ss flywheel.

Reducing the inertia of the rotating mass (be it the flywheel, clutch, crankshaft) increases the engine braking, all else being the same.
