flywheel weights.

alrighty, I read something about adding flywheel weights to make a 2 stroke calm down some.
I ride a 2001 KX250, and was thinking of getting one.
But not sure where to start, or what weight to get.
I ride trails 95% of the time.
Does anyone have experience, good or bad?

Thanks.

I just took one off of my bike. I have a cr and dislike it. But I prefer to ride mx. I think I would still not like it for trails but I prefer an untamed bike.

More flywheel weight will make the bike build rpms/rev a tad slower and also make it less prone to stalling in tight situations. Will also make the bike feel a tad less responsive. For trail riding and getting more traction, more flywheels weight can be a good thing. You'll also feel the (what little a 2 stroke has) engine braking a bit more, too.

The biggest benefit is that it reduces the tendency to stall around idle. It will also help tractability in offroad situations. I've used them on CRs and KXs.

I had a kx250 2t that came with a weighted flywheel, I swapped it out for a stock one and liked it a lot more, i ride about 50/50 mx/trails.
