Sorry about my previous misquote that somehow turned into a Dragstews quote, it had to be my fault, but...

FearNoEvil!

"anything you do to change the rotating weight and location of that weight is going to have an effect on your existing balance" is only half-true.

You can add a ton as long it does not change location of the "balanced" countermass.
An added concentric mass changes the factor none at all, if carefully applied.

But I'm not sold on 60%, Folks.

So, if my bolt on disc has an eccentricity of mass, from a drilled extra hole perhaps, then indexing it to different positions will give a different factor, correct?
If I have five positions, then I have five factors to choose from.
