I don't have a flywheel weight, but the manual states that you should retorque the rotor nut after every ride as well. I checked it the first couple of rides and haven't checked it since, though I'm sure they have a good reason to recommend checking it.

If I'm not mistaken it's in one of the many periodic maintenance charts towards the front of the manual listed with a dot in the every race catagory. I haven't read the chart in a while so I will double check when I get home tonight.

Here it is on page 3-2 of the '01 manual. The second row down from the top, "Rotor Nut". It says "retighten" after break in and after every 5th race.

I was incorrect when I said every race, sorry about that. I remembered it incorrectly.
