Ahh I was wondering. So is the consensus that this happens with all hpi or is the additional 95 gm loss the deal breaker. If it's just the minis and not the inner hpi then is it reasonable to assume that it is solely a weight issue ?? the mini's smaller radius may magnify the disparity in the angular momentum differential between the two weighs on opposite sides of the crankshaft.

I have a feeling that whether it's both the weight and the radius or just the weight will need empiric testing. I'm going to start with the 300 gm weight and simply put it on the slightly deteriorated bearing. The play at this point is slight. And run sparingly. When I am done with some other mopedisms I am gonna change the bearings and use the 300 gm weight and see how long the bearings Last. Then figure out how to get it to five hundred gms unless the overwhelming opinion is it's not just a weight thing alone. My friend Bobby who does all kind of race car engines is my next stop for wisdom. He helped me on the gila rebuild after I toasted it.
