I would think it's an engine balance problem not related to the weight of the flywheel.
Logically , if Mike had all the parts balanced apart from the new flywheel and it was smooth prior to the flywheel swap, then the flywheel isn't in balance with the rest and this is causing the vibration.When balancing cranks not everyone checks the flywheel ,or the alternator rotor for that matter.Ideally they should all be done together.
Um... no. Crankshafts are balanced to the reciprocating components: Pistons, rings, circlips, connecting rods and bolts, small end bushings and big end bearings. I have had flywheels and ring gears balanced *to each other* - without balancing any other components - with mixed results... It makes sense that a heavier flywheel will smooth out the power pulses and store more energy between combustion events.
sounds like the engine was not balanced with the new ( heavier) pistons. usually this is skipped. the flywheel shouldn't make a difference.
My $.02, I had my LeMans Flywheel lightened by Manfred Hecht along with headwork. No increase in vibrations but the engine now winds up like a two stroke.Pete
Yup. Due to a variety of circumstances, Iíve spent far too little time on my CX100 with seriously lightened flywheel. I know nothing about the specifics of this engine. So far, no adverse vibration that Iím used to from old singles, etc. But riding it back to back against my old V7 Sport makes me think that Iím not riding a Guzzi. It revs up & down effortlessly, not like my old Guzzi. To me, itís a completely different experience.
Pros of a lightened flywheel - they are beautiful. Con is that it is hidden. Would you recommend a lightened flywheel in your Sport Clint? Iím not sure whether to reinstall the one in mine or locate a stock one.
