Hi Matt
I think tey are the same. The WR flywheel is defenately heavier. In South Africa we install a flywheel weights on the 426. It is quit a improvement and helps a lot with stalling
Hope this helps

Matt, I dont think so, according to Thumper racing the flywheel itself is different, I bought my 426 early this year and had to wait until the weights were available. I ended up with a Steahly 12oz and it came already on the flywheel in a Yamaha box. Im not sure what if anything is different so you might call Steahly or someone and make sure. The Steahly worked out great because I still have my stock flywheel if I ever want to switch them out.
