flywheel weight recomendations

Recommended Posts

can anyone give me advice or opinion on what size flywheel weight to install on an 06 450 to help reduce or eliminate low rpm compression stall in slow tight technical sections of the trail? If so, who makes and sells em? Thanks

You could try adding a flywheel weight, but a Rekluse Pro will definitely fix your stalling problems. The the only drawback is the higher cost, but the advantages it provides are well worth it. If you decide on the flywheel weight the 9oz will most likely be a better choice for slow technical singletrack.

I don't think DRD makes weighted flywheels for the 06 and later models. They don't list them on the web site. I run the GYT-R Off-road flywheel (GYT-2S297-50-50), and it helps quite a bit.

Still, it's an MX bike with a tall low gear, and even with the extra weight, it doesn't have a huge amount of rotating mass. Clutch control and proper idle circuit jetting are important.

Great point! The extra weight helps but it's still not perfect considering what you said above. I found an uphill section that gave me trouble here in AZ in the past and after completing the hill I turned around and made numerous passes at it to practice on clutch control. It works!

Thanks for the advice everyone, the recluse will have to wait for a brighter payday. I'll order the gyt-r flywheel this week, thanks for the part # gray!!

I had the off-road GYTR flywheel weight on my '06 and it was the best mod I ever made to the bike. It simply enhanced the stock power and you loose nothing. I took it off my '06 when I sold the bike and just got around to putting it on my stock '08 the other day, but I have not had a chance to ride it yet to see if the results are similar or not.

would a rekluse and a FWW together be overkill? or is it common?

I ran them together on my YZ426. Its expensive, but not over kill.

Here is a chart to help you make your decision. http://www.steahlyoffroad.com/recommendation_charts.htm#YAMAHA

Give Steahlyoffroad a call. Before purchasing my 12oz they talked my ear off with info. Might be worth your time

Dano is right on with the above statement. The guys at Steahly are really helpful. The owner will probably be who you talk to. Great company.:applause:

I put on the Off Road GYTR too... I like it for off-road and it seems to start easier with the additional weight.

Funny Story: I ordered it from the yamaha dealer and just out of curiousity I asked the shop how much to install? They said 2 hours labor:eek: :applause:

I went home and had it on in 15 minutes:thumbsup:

(I did have to buy the Motion Pro Tool )

I had a steahly 10 oz wt on my '04 450. I later added a Rekluse, and it was a bit much, lost a bit of snap. I now run the Rekluse alone, and it works great....

Actually No...... MSRP 30$?

Good thing I had the part # and price for the Flywheel too.

Me " here's the GYTR part #"

Dealer " Do they show a price with that too..."

Me " Yes, $105"

Dealer " Oh , my computer has a different price in it, but I will charge you that"

A-holes:thumbsdn:

My dealer tried to hose me for like $50, he even thought the price was wrong and sold it to me for $10.95. I guess if the threads are on the inside it makes the puller worth a extra $40:banghead:

The internal thread, the fact that they are in two parts, and the low demand compared to the puller for the older YZF's do raise the price, but it should be $26.99, MSRP.
