    If I'm getting my DOCH ZC flywheel lightened by a machine shop, how light should I be making it?

    its usually safe to take them down to like 12 pounds, it makes a good difference too.

    the big deal here is to make sure the flywheel gets "balanced"

    I ran a 11lb machined flywheel on my ZC for 15,000+ miles and it is still fine, and still on the motor. Will hopefully be running it again tonight if the last swap touches go well :) Balancing is *key* - make sure the shop knows what they are doing or you migh kill a passenger.
