Re: flexplates??

Depends on what crank you have. If it's a 3y crank it needs the weight or if the crank starts with a 2y it doesn't.The 3y crank also needs a weighted spacer behind the balancer.

it does not have the weight on the balancer either,the previous owner had the mtr balanced so i would say its right,this is a internally balanced mtr??
