Fly wheel weight

Anyone know the weight of a standard 2.0 TS flywheel?

And there is significant power increase if flywheel was lightweighted by 1,8kg(as in my case), but it must be balanced afterwards. Combined with lightweight crank pulley things is quite different.

My clutch is on the way out so i was thinking of fitting a lightened fly wheel, the after market ones are about 4.6kg and 330, i,m thinking getting my standard one skimmed, hoping to save a few euro!

This is very, very responsible job to be done......if flywheel broke into pieces can become very dangerous. Put "broken flywheel" in Youtube, and you may find some scary clips.....
