They require a center adapter anyway, so the technical challenge would be getting a machine shop to make an adapter to fit it to a KA motor. They claim it's effective at "any rpm". I know that's not really true, but my reading of pendulum balancers in general lead me to understand that they are more effective over a wider range, than rubber/urethane type dampers.

That said, I see this thread has wandered away from the subject title...., ;-)
I've noticed that. Heh.
