are you talking about machining them down to reduce weight?? a lot of 2-stroke guys do this... just reduces the rotating mass a little...

did you notice any big difference? had any problems with it?

quicker revving,faster acceleration. not by much, but it's something better than stock. it would cost you like 85 bucks to have it done.

Every 2 Smoke Ive owned in my adult life I have Cut the Fly......Extremely noticeable in a Two Stroke....My Buddy a few yrs back did it to his 350X(4 stroke) Had a Tough time at Idle....But we worked the bugs out and it does rev a bit quicker....IMO, Not as noticeable as a 2 smoke....

I would say Dont do it Until you have nothing left to do....:wink:

      Been working on a Grizzly 600 with no spark.  Went through the troubleshooting chart and everything checks out within tolerance.  Anyone ever heard of the magnet for the pulse coil going bad?  Changed out the Pulse coil even though the one in there passed resistance check.  Have 44 vrms coming out of the source coil but only 1/2 vrms out of the pulse (at cranking speed).  Is that enough to fire the CDI?

      Hi All,
      i have a yamaha beartracker which is not charging and I'M looking to test the elecrical output fom the stator/rotor to check if all is well in that department. just wondering if anyone can tell me what readings for voltage/current I should be getting if the electrics are healthy? also could some one direct me to a wiring diagram on the net or post one if possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Regards
