Default removing balance shafts

i seen on another forum that you can remove the balance shaft and take weight out of the motor. what is the down side of this i was thinking if removed i would onlt have the timing belt to worry about.

The only down side is a sight vibration which isn't noticeable at all. My last 3 dsm's had them removed and would suggest anyone to do it.

when you remove them you don't have to put the belt on pulleys right?

Its not"kit" you buy from the dealer, the vfaq gives you part numbers that you can use.


Never buy b/s removal kits off ebay thats a big no no.

there are other places you can buy the removal kits from. Like buschur racing makes a kit here
https://secure.buschurracing.com/cat...496230c83f9fa8

Also dsmparts has a decent kit
http://www.dsmparts.com/customer/pro...138&page=1

also SBR
http://www.slowboyracing.com/estore/...p;bestseller=Y

and AMS
http://www.amsperformance.com/store/...roducts_id=221

so there are other places that are better than ebay, but also cheaper i bet then going to the dealership.
