    My bike with the BDK is a 2 mil SBK with lw crank and carrillo rods. crank rods pistons went out to crank specialist and got balanced. I have no vibration. no problem with over rev. Biggest advantage is there is very little engine braking no need for bliipping on downshift, no need for crappy slipper clutch.
    Nice to see,it reassures me!
    I really like the no need for blipping.
    About the little engine braking,well,SV has too much for my taste anyway,so can't go wrong with less!
    Do you have pic of your crank?
    Whom did you use for lighten crank+balance?
    Marine,falicon or local machinist to you?

      There's a pic of the SV crank on the link.

        !!!
        That crank looks incredibly light,nice job!Did you raise the idle speed?
        It is a 1st gen crank on picture.You use 1st gen or 2nd gen and did same thing to him?

        Btw when you say engine braking you mean just close throttle or starting downshift?I ask so i know we mean same thing.
        Compared to say an inline4 sport bike,it has more or less engine braking?
        2mil pistons.Are they heavy?You run compression over 13:1?
        Thanks

          when downshifting, I can just dump the clutch without upsetting the chassis. Way less engine braking than a 4 cyl.
          some 2 mil pistons are lighter than stock, some are way heavier. the pistons I use are light. I'm running 13.5:1 compression. This is a race bike that gets torn down every winter. tic tic tic tic boom!

            I get it,you have different priorities than me.

            Nevertheless here's my experience with stock SV engine braking(just closing throttle) from many tours around Greek mountains and highways.
            SV engine braking is wayyy more than lets say fazer600 or GSXR!
            It can be tricky if you roll off the throttle suddenly when engine revs are around max torque,it can actually cause rear wheel skid(depending or tarmac condition).
            There was instance when after getting back in line after overtaking,buddy who was following almost ran into me.
            He later told me that my brakes don't activate the brake light and that I should check them!
            Guess what:I didn't brake...

            If you start downshifting it gets even worse(unless it's from high revs and you play with clutch lever).

            So judging from your experience,if I decide to lighten it it could be somewhat beneficial.

            I also think that less engine braking whet let go the gas,can make smaller the chances of rotor/clutch twisting and breaking crank (can be wrong on that opinion though).

            One more thing:2nd gen crank has beveled the edge that is around crank pin,see pics.
            Can I duplicate 2nd gen design on that area to 1st gen crank without strength compromise?
