He said:
"I am trying to stay away from the fly wheel. I like the engine braking. I know changing the fly wheel will cause a loss there. I do only MX."

JLo, do you get paid by Rekluse? I have seen you answer like 100 times this way.
Some may like the feel of a MX-bike with A CLUTCH, not the PW-feel.

mxmedic, just ride your bike more, you'll get used to it. I'm 44 too. :cry:



Nope not on the Pay roll just love the product and i know first hand anyone who trys it does as well also.

As far as engine braking goes, you never miss it

As far as a PW goes, well it is sure on fast PW, faster then some slower then most :cry:

I put an 8oz weight on my 04. It definitely helps. much smoother power. better all around ride. I run a 14/50 sprocket setup.

Before you do anything I would work with the jetting. Mine was too rich for me ( I ride mostly between 2 - 3 thousand feet). I dropped the needle one notch and it made a huge difference. With the stock setting it would bog and run crappy on bottom then you would get a huge midrange hit. Once the jetting was sorted it still had the hit but the transition was much smoother. Night and day difference for me.

I know it is a good product, my friend has it on his 03 450 after my recommendation. But I don't know, somehow I feel a bike has to have a clutch, that's the way I've been riding since 9. I would prefer a flywheel weight, but I am not sure about that either any longer... :cry:

I found a great deal on a 16oz weight for my 03 450 -- Is that going to be to much flywheel weight?
