    Counterweight question when running 3" pads

    My PC7424 XP as a 5" counterweight as stock, when running these smaller pads say in my case a 3" pad do you just keep the 5" counterweight as is? I plan to run the 3 inch pad and backing plate from Lake Country.

    I use my HF DA that way [using the 3" LC BP & pads] and it's absolutely no problem. You'll be fine.

    Re: Counterweight question when running 3" pads

    I just asked Mike about a similar thing in this thread.

    Griots Garage 3" BOSS HD Oribital Backing Plate

    This plate is designed and balanced for the GG6 which comes with 6" backing plate.

    I don't know if LC took downsizing into consideration when they designed their backing plate.

    It's a pretty bare bones backing plate.
