the heavier the better,i believe they are available in 9,11,and 13 ounce.i've run all three weights and on the 450 i like the 13 the best.works great on real tight and technical riding.pretty much makes the bike lug and pull like a freight train...or an xr

I use the GYTR 9.21oz flywheel on my 06 YZ450 and it works great. I also changed my gearing to 13/51. I use my bike 90% of the time in the woods.

IIRC stock is 13/52 correct? Are you riding really tight, technical stuff or more open stuff?

Stock '06 gearing is 13/49.

"I see," (says the blind man, peeing into the wind) "it all comes back to me now."

Thanks for clearing my foggy memory grayracer.
