Just got my flywheel in today and it looks great. I went from 984g to 807g. That's 175g or an 18% reduction in weight. Pouring rain so I can't road test yet.

Out of curiosity, does the flywheel puller that works on my GY6 work on the GET?

Yes it does.

Have there ever been any issues with the lightened flywheel not balancing with the crank? I was telling a car guy about this, and he was concerned that the flywheel and crank on race cars need to be balanced together. I dunno anything about that, and he dunno anything about scoots, but all I could tell him is that I have never seen any mention of this issue. People sometimes get flywheels that didn't come off their own scoot, and no one has ever said there was any kind of problem.

Can I be enlightened? :oops:

also works on the zuma 125, lifan type engines, old honda engines like c70, ct70 and probably the grom since its engine is similarly shaped and I think I used it on a kymco 125 engine too


good investment to buy one

I answered this more in detail to you via PM, but for everyone else, I think I have mentioned this before but these are lightened off the centerline of an OEM Ruckus crankshaft so it will be just as balanced as it was installed stock before lightening.

The Grom puller is actually completely different, and actually way more expensive as well.

 Post subject: Report on results after installing lightened flywheel
PostPosted: Sat Mar 26, 2016 8:48 am 
One-mile long easy uphill, with a couple short flat spots in the middle.
Last week, with stock flywheel, could not GET above 30 mph (speedo) the entire distance.

Today, with lightened flywheel, tried it again and was not below 33 at any point, and at best up to 36 mph, SO THE LIGHTENED FLYWHEEL DEFINITELY MAKES A DIFFERENCE! (Speedo mph used only for comparison, not to establish ACTUAL speed.)

I re-read the thread about lightened flywheels
[[http://totalruckus.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=108&t=12578]]
because I was wondering about the differing reports on whether this mod makes a difference. I noted that when JCRacing began lightening them, John was taking off about 4 ounces. Mine is slightly more than 6 ounces lighter than stock, so perhaps some differing reports have been in part due to that change.

In addition, I think it would make a more immediately noticeable difference if your scoot is not optimally tuned. If the scoot is well-tuned or at least close to optimal, installing a lightened flywheel may not make as dramatic a change. As noted in my experience above, I needed specific measured parameters to be sure that there was indeed a difference. Riding on flat roads, it feels like it accelerates faster, but I had no real benchmark.

Now I will do more riding and see if I can determine whether I need to lighten my sliders to raise my rpms (not hitting 8000 until 40 mph :( ) or if that is simply due to sudden decrease in temperature. I'm wondering whether varying reports of needing or not needing to change weights are also due to differential stages of CVT tuning at install.

(ps--get yours done! Good Vendor bump!)
