i still think its a good idea to run a fww i was just proving a point
the fwws are great for the woods bikes that are hard to control(mostly all two strokes and possibly some of the harder hitting 4Ts)
in many cases the little bit that you loose hp wise you will gain that back on a better control of your bike...i personly run a 250f that i dont feel the need for the fww.. i am already underpowerd compared to the 2t
.. sigh.. hate to break it to you grasshopper.. "WE" didn't establish that there is ANY horsepower loss.. you seem to have it in your head there is hp loss when adding fww, did you actually read the posts following your "claim" that horsepower is lost? you are the only one that says there is a loss of horsepower. (as in you alone, you singular, you and nobody else, you are on one side of argument and everyone else is on other..).
Multi TIME ISDE winner Dwight Rudders says you don't loose hp with a heavier fww, DOUG DUBACH world champion says in his article you don't, everyone else including "A" class riders that have been racing longer than you have been alive state there is no hp loss using a heavier fww. But somehow laws of physics fail to apply in a 5 foot shere surrounding you? Ok! Even i learned something.
Now, all funny stuff aside. if you wanna state "i think a heavier flywheel weight causes a loss of hp" or somethin like that.. great, no problem, it's a FREE COUNTRY.. but DON'T post some bullpucky statement like "we established... " cause "WE" didn't.
Im glad to see you think it is a good idea for some bikes. At least we got that far, but you just MIGHT like a little extra fww on YOUR bike. But alas, as you think (wrongly) you "loose hp" you will likely never even try it for harescrambles/enduro. As your only 19 years old, there is still LOTS of time for you to give it a try. yea, i have taken this thread a little personal.
