I did a search on fly wheel weights and it left me with more questions than when i started. I read that Dr. D has 4, 6 and 8oz weights and if you want to switch you just call them and pay shipping and they'll let you trade it in. that sounds awesome to me, and i made sure to read it in two different threads here cuz it sounded too good. but i went to Dr. Ds website and i don't see any fly wheel weights in their product line. did they stop making them?

what about GYT-R? do they have any advantage?

and as for steahly. i know of them the best. i have a steahly 10 oz. i've read that the steahly weights are heavier than the rest because they acheive the same affect differently. what does 4, 6 and 8oz for Dr. D equal for Steahly? are there any advantages or disadvantages between the way steahly does FWWs and GYTR/DR. D do?

thanks

I've got a GYTR 9oz. waiting for me to pick up at the local Yamahamer dealer, I just prefer the factory parts to aftermarket. I won't get it until next week, I will let you know what I think of it when it comes in.

One of the variables you overlooked is that DRD doesn't have weighted flywheels for '06's. The GYT-R Off Road (+9 oz) is your best bet.

The advantage to welding a weight in place instead of bolting it is that the welded weight can't come loose, and the welded assembly is balanced after the weight is added.

i couldn't find the Dr. D fly wheel weights period. they're not on Dr. Ds site. at least not under products. only reason i knew they even make them is by searching TT. would have been able to figure that out had i found them for sale somewhere.

I ordered the GYTR for an 06. They got it in 2 days. The hard part is paying for it without the ole lady finding out. She is figuring out that the accessory habit is nearly as expensive as the motorcycle habit.
