What do you guys think of a 6 1/4" Fluidampr for 7200 rpm? I just picked one up cheap and was wondering if it would negatively affect my internal balance. The Fluidampr itself is dynamically balanced and tested to 8000 I think I read somewhere. Would I be able to just switch balancers safely? One more thing, the existing balancer wasn't worked on at all to achieve the balance; all done on the crank.

Thanks guys. Yah, I'd love to have an ATI, but they cost too much $$$ for my little operation. I got this Fluidampr through some trading and it looks real good. Fired it up today.

That should be alot safer than a stock one. I saw a stock balancer outer ring come apart. VERY DANGEROUS!
