Which location of the flywheel would I remove material from and how much?

Not adviseable. Better to get a flywheel made light instead. Why do you want to light the flywheel of a woods bike?

Why a WR then? YZ is a much better SM race bike. Flywheel is already lighter and GYTR offeres lighter ones.

Well...I though the WR would be a better choice with the longer ratio gear box.
The WR is all I could get street legalized out here in California..If I would have bought a YZ I would have only been able to ride on tracks-I can ride my WR around the mountain roads behind my house and practice in between race weekends.

I am not doing Supermoto Stuff on it right now.
Roadracing in the AFM series with it- afmracing.org.Formula Singles and 250 Superbike.

I removed material off my little ttr125 flywheel back in '05 and I noticed a couple of company's offer +/- 6 Oz for the WR..Everything is 149.00$.Just though someone might have done a little modifying on an OEM piece and had some directions on which part of the wheel they shaved from..
