I was trying to find a +9.21oz GYTR flywheel (on backorder everywhere) when a fellow TTer PMed and said he had one for sale that he had bought, but never installed, because he had sold his YZ. I specifically checked with him to ask if the one he had was the heaviest one ( adds 9.21oz) which is part# GYT-2S297-50-50. He confirm that it was, so I bought it from him.

Well, I got it in today and noticed that the install instructions which came with it are for the GYT-2S297-50-00, which is the lighter (+4.8oz) version. Now I'm confused, maybe disappointed.

The part itself is stamped F2S210 and weighs in at 23.2 ounces (658 grams). Does anyone know what a stock flywheel weighs or have one lying around (after you upgraded) that you could weigh and let me know for comparison purposes? If a stock one is 14 ounces, I'm good to go. If it's 18.4 ounces stock, I got sent the lighter one.

Thanks!:)

13.5 is what I got. Scale is probably trustworthy within an ounce or less.

Excellent. Thanks very much guys.

Any tips/hints/suggestions on installing this thing? I did get the correct flywheel puller from Rocky Mtn. Will I likely need to get a new crankcase cover gasket?

Not likely, but possibly.

That's a great tip. My puller came with one of those protector caps and I was trying to figure out the proper use for it.:)

Tyler. Maybe sometime we can meet up at Buffalo Creek MX. I'm not very track-savvy (especially when it comes to jumping), so I can use all the help I can get.

Took the YZ out early this morning to Mud Creek ATV park (2000+ arces near Jacksonville). I was the only bike out there. They have a mix of trails (hard, sandy, muddy), some of which are just for the 4-wheelers who love mud. I pretty much had the trails to myself from 8 until about 10:30.

:):thumbsup: on the heavier flywheel. It makes a significant difference in the way power comes on in the low end. The YZ never stalled even the times when I was slogging it through a foot of muddy water. That change, combined with the 51t rear sprocket, makes the YZ quite capable on the trails. When I got it home, I had to scrape the mud off the fender bottoms and front frame area with a plastic putty knife while spraying with the hose.
