I liken it to:
1) Why'd they give us such a soft/anemic rear mount?
2) Why'd they give us such a horrid stock tune?
3) Why didn't they make the TC completely defeatable with the switch?
etc etc...

If you look at the link in my first post (link to where I first saw this mod),
you'll see there's several people that have had the counterweight removed for quite some time with no ill effects.
4) Why does the CAT bracket break so easily?
5) Why do the stupid heatshields rattle so much?
etc. etc....

I'm sold, I'll give it a try this weekend and see what happens.

P.s. GO HEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
