Default adjustable weights options

Other than Dalton what are other options? Need some with a 74 gram base. Looks like slp doesn't comes 74.4 fully loaded, need 76-77 grams. For an 18 style clutch.

With the SSI magnet type, do you need to take off the face plate to add/remove?

thanks

ssi are good, have had no issues in 7000 klm. you do not have to remove cover to add or subtract mags. just take belt off and pry open clutch and hold open.

You could look into the style that fett Bros sells, I think it's similar to Dalton, I can remember the exact brand but it's can look later

I bought a used set of D&D Magna Force weights 3 holes and they seem to work good in my 2020 ZR 800. It would be nice to have 4 holes to have more options for fine tuning.

I have experience with Bikeman and D&D magnaforce. Both are good. D&D has a little more weight machined in the tip so they require less weight than the Bikeman. I had trouble with wearing flat spots into the Bikeman so went D&D this year and love them Maybe I got a bad set of Bikeman weights????

I prefer the magnet style weights vs the set screw weights. You get a lot more flexibility on where the weight is placed with the magnets..

Good to know. Thanks to you characters on this forum I've become obsessed with tweaking my clutching as I've never had so much fun on this machine.

I must have missed the three hole Magnaforce. I've been running them for 10-11 years and I've only had 4 holers.
