    yea lad sorry, as i said i no nothin bout them ha...

    any info ya have regarding any lightened flywheel is welcome
  4. Bong Guest

    B16B already has a fairly light flywheel but the Act is lighter still

    You'll notice a difference should rev slightly faster, parking manouvers will require more revving so as not to stall

    Its not worth it unless you doing the clutch or any other gear box work

  6. Bong Guest

    Streetlite is heavier for street use, Prolite is lighter for track/race use

    Not sure because like I say the B16B and B18C already have lighter flywheels so might not make a noticable difference most people just go for the lighter one, you would be best off finding out how much the standard fly wheel weighs anc comapring it before making a decision, I can't remember what it weighs

    I have an 12lbs (I think!) ACT flywheel - can't say I notice a blind bit of difference! Wish I'd saved the money.
