THanks for all the heads up guys. Really appreciate it.

Just would like to close this forum stating that this was only my oppinion from what I have experienced.

I am just over it now, not gonna let it get to me. But thanks again for all the help :)

Cheers,
Joe

Had a solid put in not long ago, Bit of a rattle at idle and little more jerky on take off but feels way more solid and much more reliable.

VT S pack
I have a 99 VT S pac, My clutch is getting a bit 'used' and i want to put a HD clutch in, but i dont know if i should go single mass or dual mass. I dont have big HP but i do a few skids and want it to hold up. Im not sure if my flywheel is stock... Is dual mass better, or solid.? Thanks.

The question which nobody has asked yet, which clutch did you put in it?

LOL, the OP hasn't been on the forum since late 2012.

Thread is almost 4 years old.........

The ecotec V6 is an externally balanced engine, when changing the flywheel you should have the new one mirror balanced to the old one and as Reaper mentioned it would probably pay to have the clutch pressure plate included when getting it balanced.

The issue with the dual mass flywheel is that when you change the clutch, you have to change the flywheel as well. Either way, you should get the new flywheel/clutch mirror balanced to the old unit coming off.

Google dual mass flywheel, there is a good vid on youtube explaining what it does. IF you intend to have some fun and give the clutch/flywheel a hard time then the solid is probably the better option. Should you kill the clutch at least with a solid, get it ground, throw on a new clutch and your off killing tyres again.
