If you've ever taken the balance shaft out of any of the T300 series you will know it weighs about 3 tons!

Has anyone run an engine without the balance shaft in place?

I seem to remember from years ago that race teams may have tried it.

Nope but having ridden a non-balance-shaft Yamaha XS850 triple I'm happy to lose a few HP!

Wheeltrax, I believe the race teams did so. Further, I'm pretty sure someone who is or was on this forum did so, maybe a year or 2 ago? I recall having the impression that it really wasn't something to do on a daily rider.

Cheers,
