I’m not sure what’s going on with the Fatboy counterweight. My 12” Fatboy was shipped with just a standard c/w and was later replaced by the exact same c/w but with a provision to attach an additional add on plate. My counterweight looks to be bigger than the one you posted. I don’t need the added plate. On another thread, a new Fatboy owner confirmed that VPI now offers different c/w weights for the Fatboy and has abandoned the add on plate route.

Here is a picture of my Fatboy c/w

Yes, when I asked for the upgraded counterweight (my original one didn't have the option to add plates) it was shipped with two plates. Perhaps they've changed things?

The plot thickens. I am very curious. Maybe we can get response from Mat or Harry
