I removed the counterweight some time ago and love it. Granted It wasn't nearly as easy for me to get off... I ended up stripping the head of the bolt got pissed of and said it who needs the freaking counterweight and took the sawzall to it... I cut through the bushing between the counterweight and the arm it connects to and then through the bolt, no ill effects. Granted it can't ever be put back but I have no regrets after driving with it removed.
