I love the heavy flywheel on my R75/6 I think it suits the smaller capacity bikes.

Thanks for all the comments, gents. So there are some people leaning both ways, but what I haven't heard is a resounding "yes, do it - there are no down sides". I haven't even ridden this bike yet, so I don't think there is a need to start modifying things like this until I have, so I'm going to pass (at least for now).

Thanks for the responses!

You might (probably will) decide that it's not the ideal candidate for track days.

I certainly don't doubt that, but unfortunately as my only motorcycle for the foreseeable future, it will be the only candidate.
