My buddy has a custom made balancer for his boat and buggy flywheel, he balanced all his flywheel and trued all crank shaft, but I was told thats not much difference, those flywheel still had a bit vibration at the high rpm.

Try it on your tires. A little bit of clay and your good to go.

You don't want a balancer with any steel within 6" of the flywheel you are balancing. The magnets will throw off your balancing job and it will vibrate more than before.
