Identical in every way to the current flywheel, new part alleviates production pressure.

Milwaukee (August 20, 2021) – Briggs & Stratton Racing has begun producing and shipping engines with a new flywheel for its product line-up, including the popular Local Option 206 engine.

The new Briggs & Stratton flywheel marks an important step for the Company to open up the supply chain and address the order backlog while maintaining performance parity.

“It’s very important for the racing community to understand this new flywheel is identical in every way to the current PVL-made flywheel,” stated Dan Roche, Director of Motorsports.

The design, materials, weight, magnet specifications and balance specifications are all identical between the two flywheels. Briggs & Stratton Engineering and its own Performance Lab proved in side-by-side testing that the two flywheels performed identically.

Further, five independent blind dyno comparison tests were conducted by leading four-cycle engine tuners across North America. “The results agreed 100% with our own. From a design, production and most importantly, performance perspective, these two flywheels are identical,” said Roche.

Both flywheels will be available through the Briggs & Stratton Racing dealer network. The Racing dealer locator is available at
