Default Crank Pulley Debate

I know there is debate on whether to change your crank pully.I knowan underdivencrank pully isn't good, but what about just a size difference?What are the advantages and disavantages and should I get one?

but the size change is what makes it an underdrive pulley....

they also weigh a lot less

If you really want to get rid of your stock pulley just put on a lighter billet aluminum one that's the same size. That will reduce the rotational weight a little and give you a small power gain, but there are better things to invest you money in.

I think thats the main thing that I heard about using all 3 pulleys. But I also read I believe in a performance book that honda engines are built in a way that it wont effect your engine's balancer and ruining it in a short span of time.

Did you only have one pulley in? I heard it's useless unless you get all three.
