Flyweights with the hole are lighter and will require more rpm to push clutch shoe to clutch bell (more spool up ) three pin flywheel the flyweights swing out and 4 pin they slide out. The three pin allows you to dial in more gap without losing flyweights.

The 4-pin clutch has flyweights without holes and has optional lightened flyweights with 2 holes. The lighter the flyweight the more agressive the clutch will become.

The newer 3-pin clutches has always a flyweight placed over the pin, if you do see the MRX5 clutch you have an example and you can cut a normal shoe to such flyweights. You can cut the 4-pin black clutch shoe so you have 4 flyweights with an hole at one side, this will make the 4-pin clutch an awesome clutch.

I used to use the optional flyweights with the holes drilled out to 4 mm with the mugen red shoe and msr spring. Worked well the Orion spring is even better .......... The shepherd spring is probably the best / longest lasting ... I used a .7 to . 8 mm gap and set spring tension on the track. If track is loose the grey shoe may work better for you. If you set spring tension too loose clutch shoe will dust. Good luck
