The OEM pressure plate is pretty light, and I doubt the aftermarket billet ones are actually lighter. It's mostly bling. I have the SpeedyMoto pressure plate which while heavier than the OEM plate, offers superior protection. I got the black one because I'm not in to flashy bling, but functional bling!

Eric (Throttlehead),
When we designed our pressure plate we built it so that the pressure plate would protect the springs and clutch hub in a right side crash situation. It has been copied by Speedy Moto (they admitted it) but ours was first. I have never compaired weight but considering the damage protection and being able to continue a race or not having to call for a tow truck, I think the bennefits out weigh any weight savings you would gain or lose.
