Don, when I had it apart two seasons ago I cleaned and inspected all parts. I didn't count how many weights were on the pressure plate finger ring but I did take some photographs that I could look back at. Any idea how many weights should be there?

I wish I had another non-weighted pressure plate laying around that I could swap out to see if the vibration changes, that still wouldn't answer the question if it's the weight system Centerforce uses or just a poorly balanced setup though.

I also wonder if it's a case of the weights sticking in an out of balance location at times. I live in the northeast so we see all kinds of weather, with that in mind, I wouldn't be surprised if a weighted system pressure plate like this is not such a great solution for the area I live...
