Vitesse and Spitfire Flywheels


Recommended Posts

Hi all. I had been hunting hi and low for my Vitesse flywheel. Not where I thought I had left it . Found a couple of MK3 Spit ones and was getting confused until I realised the Vitesse and spitfire flywheels are that same size. I had visualised the spitfire one to be a lot smaller. Vitesse one on the right.

the friction pad mating surface is alot smaller in diameter however the overall diameter will be roughly the same to get the starter gear close to the starter motor i guess.

whats the difference in thickness?

Same thickness. same diameter. Surface machined slightly differently and holes and dowels in a different place. So either the Vitesse has a lightweight flywheel or the spitfire has a heavy one.
