'02 KLX 300 Vs fly wheel

Recommended Posts

Has anyone considered lightening the flywheel in order to get a faster reving bike? If so, how much weight and can I simply chuck it on a lathe and turn down the outside diameter?

I believe that the magnets in the flywheel would be in the way. Someone has lightened their flywheel but I don't remember the details.

About a month ago I saw a KLX300 flywheel (on ebay) which had already been shaved. I don't have any details but seems like it was done by a company not an individual and went for about $200.

About a pound. Machine shop could do it for cheap. I bought mine this way and I don't recall the specifics but if I stumble over them, I'll post. I do remember it looked to be common sense where the shaving could occur.
