od weights are for a stock sheave. or stock sheaves with the inner hub machined out for lower starting gear,

That is a good deal those weights alone retail for the $60 shipped w/o the cam plate and sliders...

Will work a lot better with a JBS sheave...

One can also send a stock sheave in good condition to JBS to have it machined...or buy a brand new one...

The biggest drawback of the O.D. weights with a stock sheave not machined for lower gearing from a stop is that in a stock sheave the OD weights give you taller than stock gearing from a stop...so with regard to take-off it is like putting on taller tires...

When you use the JBS machining you get the OD weights with LOWER than stock gearing from a stop...

The OD weights on a typical 660 will raise your unlimited top speed from 50ish to 55ish and give you noticeably lower cruising rpms at speeds over 35-40 mph...

So what benzo is selling is a damned cheap way to get the benefit of the OD weights and one can get a sheave done low cost or pickup a sheave later...

YOU CANNOT USE OD WEIGHTS WITH A SHEAVE ALREADY MACHINED FOR MORE TOP SPEED WITH ROUND ROLLERS...

But you can use that camplate on a 660 with round greaseless weights and the camplate and greaseless sliders alone are worth his price IMO...

Assuming the other side of the camplate looks good... !
