Replace it.
Ricky Stator has them for $125.

Even when they are lighten. It's not worth it.

I have seen guys loose there ankles to there toes.

I wouldn't own another Ricky Stator product if he gave them to me, and offered to pay for it...
Their Stators are junk. Unless he wanted to travel and replace/work on my bike for me...forget it.

I'd rather find a used on from a forum member or take a chance on a fleabay flywheel then get a new RS piece of junk....

RS stuff might have been good back in the day, their cheap, Chinese metals have ruined their product.

Chinese metals? Where do you think Yamaha gets there metal from?

I run a RS stator on my asphalt dragger. DM 20mm 710cc. Never a problem.

Absolutely positively will not recommend Ricky Stator products anymore. Between their stators that fail way too often, flywheels missing any hint of balancing, and the stator plates made from pop cans- no more. Ive had too many problems to ever ever ever use their stuff again.

In the past, I would say have it lightened, but after this happened to me a couple months ago, I'm sticking with stock weight. This was NOT shaved down too much (done by a well known, reputable person), had it for almost 5 years before it took a dive...halfway down the track and POP, snap, crackle, backfire, lol. I was real lucky it didn't come apart any more

I would get another stock weight flywheel

And I have also seen pictures of rivets coming loose, breaking, etc. with RS flywheels...

NO thanks... OEM works just fine.

Yes please i don't want to run a lightened wheel i don't think it does anything either and i'd rather the insurance of a stock oem wheel more than anything. Bobby if you want this wheel make an offer i don't know how much a damaged flywheel runs just wait for Rico to give me a price on the one he has and we'll all three work something out. Sorry Rico can i get that one from you?
