I searched and only saw posts from a few years back or older model year YZ250s so I thought I would post this. I have a 2018 YZ250X and based on suggestions from a thread I posted on "what YZ250X mods out of the gate?" I'm looking into adding a flywheel weight.
This Steahly model comes in 11 or 13 oz. ... and this MSR model comes in 9, 11 or 13 oz.
Any suggestions, especially on how much weight, would be much appreciated.
Also would appreciate any install tips on the simplest tools needed for install, e.g., is spark plug stop the easiest?

Based on suggestions from the thread YZ250 Mods Out of Gate post about adding a flywheel weight, I'm considering a flywheel such as this MSR model in 9oz or 11oz (not sure). I have never installed a flywheel weight before and was looking to purchase a flywheel puller. Looking at them, I thought, geez, those sure like like that old Shimano bicycle crank pullers I have, per picture. Think I can use one of these to install a flywheel weight?
Hey guys. I have a 2009 KTM XCF 250 and I had to buy a replacement stator. I bought the OEM stator from motosport, but when I received ir I noticed not only were the wires different colors red/black red/white rather than green and red, but the connector is a male connector rather than a female connector. My old stator had the wires going into a female connector which connected into the male connector from the CDI. I'm unable to return the part so I'm trying to make it work. Are there any adapters? I'm having a hard time finding an adapter with female on both ends or some other way to get this to work without having to solder wires together.
Looking to put a Steely 8oz flywheel weight on my 17 350XCF and would like some input from people who are using them. What do you like and not like about it?
Can I take it off if I don't like it?
I have always run a Rekluse in my CRF450R's and feel I am a faster rider without it now, that's why I am leaning towards the flywheel weight for Harescrambles and trail riding.
