Just curious. Did you re-balance the rotating assembling after lightening the crank?

Thanks for the question, Rick. The answer is: not yet; I'm still a bit unclear on how singles are balanced. There is not a lot of metal in these engines, and probably not a lot of metallurgy either (It is impressive what you get though for under $100; I really don't know how they do it). I thought that I would see what I could remove. Then maybe look into where I should add.

There are some good websites that detail balancing motors. I built a b-day twin from scratch several years ago and I had no clue how to balance it. I found a website with a balance calculator. You just plug in all your weights (I used a small digital scale that reads out in tenths of a gram) and it tells you how much bob-weight to add for static balancing. It worked great.

I hate that damn auto correct. That's supposed to say V-twin.
