I installed an MSR ffw on my '03. When I turn the engine over the weight seems to wobble, like it's crooked :thumbsup: !

Are these weighted off center?

Is it supposed to do this?

Never mind, I fixed it.
It helps to read the instructions first!

The machined edges on the front of the flywheel fit in the grooves on the back of the weight. Kind of "locks" it in place.

Oh yeah and I rode the bike today. Wow, what a difference 9oz makes! :thumbsup: I highly recommend. It makes the bike much more enjoyable to ride.
