Thanks for the reply guys, didn't realise there was 2 holes in the shaft.
I understand how spinning gets the particles separated,
Just couldn't figure how the oil got out once it's in.

Just ordered a new spinner to do the mod on.
See if it's worth it without losing the option to switch back

Just imagine with the clutch side cover replacement esp with the HD oil pump replacement you will feel the different and also have better oil flow when you go external oil cooler and filter replacement.

Ok, go bored, wet and miserable here today.
So decided to do the mod.
All went fairly easily, although the spinner was harder than I imagined.
Anyhoo, following "nd4spdbh" cut up a 22mm socket to make the nut tool.
Spinner came strait off no probs.
Chucked it into the lathe, and hacked off all that surplus weight.
Spinner back on, again no probs.
Can't test ride it though, bloody weather...:(

Has anyone installed the kitaco side cover and also installed the lightened flywheel? Is there a noticeable difference good or bad?

This is not possible. The kitaco cover gets rid of the oil spinner completely and puts a collar in its place. There is no physical room or need for the oil spinner due to the oil filter housing.

Right. I'm aware. I've got the Kitaco clutch cover on both my groms. I'm aware the OIL SPINNER is removed. My question was about the FLYWHEEL which is on the left side of the bike.

Dont see why you couldnt, but you do want to keep some rotating mass.

the only problem I found with the lighten flywheel is that the timing markers are machined off so if you have a very good machine tool and pre-mark the TDC Line and the F line than you would be ok after machining the fly wheel.

Been waiting for the weather to change so I can give the Grom a good test after the Spinner mod.
Yesterday was super so decided to have a trip to the Ocean, La Rochelle.
350km round trip (About 200miles)



Terrific day out, riding through all the Vineyards of Cognac, hardly any traffic being mid week.

As for the Spinner mod:
First off I feel the initial take off to be better.
Seemed to be more responsive out of corners etc
But the main difference I noticed was when I got above 5000rpm.
It defo seems to respond far quicker between 5k and 7k.
It did appear to be a bit "buzzy" at full revs that I hadn't noticed before.

Fuel consumption was not affected, that I could tell.
186Km to the Ocean (116miles)
3.74 litres (Just under US gall)
