Badger56 posted a topic in The Start LineHi all, Probably a daft question but, the bottom of my flywheel is exposed i.e. not covered by a plate or anything, is that correct?? it sits behind the sump but I would think it's subject to road dirt grit etc and really should have a plate in front of it. Anyone got any thoughts? Cheers Dave
Hi folks, Currently planning to build a xflow, all kinds of parts lying around, some more to buy when I start the build. Stage 3 head and 234 cam and 41.3/34.9 valves on twin springs in stock, twin chain and adjustable timing gear, high flow dry sump oil pump a.s.o. I'm not in a hurry, but may be on a budget, so whenever I can DIY I will. How about a lightened flywheel? The engine will land in my 520kg Westy one day, mostly road use, but I want a happily fast revving engine. I can live with lumpy idle, that's not an issue, but... - start from a standard flywheel, shave some weight, take it to a shop for balancing - how much weight to take off and where the best - invest and buy a readily balanced/lightened flywheel after seeing nasty pics The weight should be a good compromise but tend more to the racey part of my driver's soul. Thanks for your input! Cheers. Jos
