Hallo,

Does anyone has experience whether I could expect dyno proven power gains on an 1100cc, 3 cylinder naturally aspirated engine by reducing knife edge and reduce the cranks weight?

Hello yes i have found this to be the case in testing but often the cost of balancing the crank after has made it not worth the effort

for minimum gain
