Hi, I am looking for the lightest EA81 flywheel ever put into an EA81 to drop into my brat. And how much the lightest one weighs. Also, can I use a fly off of an EA82 or an XT6 flywheel with the EA81 engine/trans?

Thanks

Rick

How much are you willing to spend? I know someone that has a bunch of ea81 parts and a big lathe. We could probably machine the heck out of one for you if you want a REALLY lightened flywheel

I would like to keep it way under $100 if possible. I don't want it too light, as I don't want it to stall out when I let the clutch out, but I want it light enough to get it to rev faster. So I would have to find out how much it weighs, and then figure how much I want shaved off.

Can you machine it and still keep it balanced?

Thanks

Rick

I would have to have it sent to a machine shop to have it balanced, thats something that I just dont have enough experience on to attempt myself

I Have A Flywheel From An 84 Subee Ea81 With 5 Speed, But I Have No Idea If It Is The Lightest One Available. I Could Weigh It If You Are Interested. Jon

I think I am gonna leave it to stock specs, as far as weight....balancing sounds expensive.


I think I am going to buy a new flywheel, cause I found one for cheap...but if that falls through, then I will PM you.

Thanks

Rick
