Re: Can this work (crank balancing sorta)
nice work dude. the more you remove, the higher the sweet spot will be. the only problem with balancing that way is that you lose some of your "primary" or "crankcase" compression, which is the ratio of the crankcase volume with the piston at tdc to the volume at bdc. up to a.certain point, more is better. you aren't anywhere near too much though. on your next motor, (with a removeable crank gear hopefully) you should remove the weights and remove material from the instead, then you can fill the empty spots in the weights with silicone and assemble.
what a difference though huh
